What is Hurontario Light Rail Transit Project?
The Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT), is 18 km of light rail service connecting people from the Port Credit GO station to Brampton Gateway Terminal. The project is provincially planned and funded costing around $1.4 billion from the province.
Metrolinx is the company leading the way to development of the LRT. Hurontario LRT is strategic to residents and businesses located along Hurontario.
Metrolinx, with the assistance of the City of Mississauga and Brampton is reaching out to the property owners in the view of reaching an amicable agreement. In the meanwhile, owners in the affected areas have been given notices of the planned changes.
As the city moves with the LRT project local businesses will most likely be affected. If your business is located along that corridor you may very well be influenced by the construction.
On the upside, the project offers residents employment opportunities for:
- Youth to enter construction trades as an apprentice
- Secondly, newcomers and foreign trained professionals, and
- Thirdly, social enterprises to benefit from project procurement.
