Stantec has been awarded a technical advisory services contract by Metrolinx and Infrastructure Ontario (IO) for the Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) project.

The 18-kilometre (11.18-mile) light-rail project will connect the Port Credit GO regional rail station near Lake Ontario to the Brampton Gateway Terminal and include 19 stops from Mississauga to Brampton. The project also includes an operations, maintenance and storage facility located at Highway 407.

As lead technical advisor, Stantec will provide design, construction and commissioning oversight services to ensure the successful delivery of the project. Design review services on the project have already commenced and are proceeding at this time under Ontario’s definition of allowable construction projects.

“We’re seeing increasing investment in transit projects in Ontario and in other North American markets,” said Gregg Cooke, vice president and regional business leader, transportation at Stantec.

“Governments are looking to provide smart and efficient mobility systems to better move growing urban populations, while reducing congestion and travel times. The Hurontario LRT will provide a sustainable transportation solution and economic opportunity to the citizens of Mississauga and Brampton for decades to come.”

Stantec is engaging various specialists within transportation engineering, civil engineering, environmental, rail systems, building engineering, urban planning and architecture from multiple offices in Ontario, supported by additional expertise from across North America. Stantec will also be supported locally by HDR.

Metrolinx and IO are delivering the Hurontario LRT through a public-private partnership (P3) contract. After completion, the LRT line will be operated and maintained by the Mobilinx Consortium but will remain publicly owned by Metrolinx.
Project construction is expected to be completed in 2024.
