Hurontario LRT to bring more transit options to Mississauga and Brampton

11 September 2017

Steer Davies Gleave was part of the team appointed to provide Preliminary Design & Engineering (PDE) services for the Hurontario LRT project. We produced 22km at-grade urban style LRT alignment designs and a set of complementary complete street designs to respond to the Corridor Vision to transform the Hurontario corridor into a vibrant, higher density corridor with new developments and neighborhoods focusing on new LRT stops.

Major opportunities for convenient transfer to other transit, including the regional GO Rail network were also addressed.

The emergence of ‘urban style’ light rail transit (LRT) projects in North America, especially in Canada, has been noticeable over the past decade. As a rapid transit mode solution catering to intermediate ridership, the benefits of light rail reach far beyond efficient and practical people-moving.
