Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Metrolinx earlier this week announced the agency has selected Mobilinx to design, build and finance the Hurontario light-rail project between Mississaugu and Brampton, Ontario, as well as operate and maintain the system.

IO and Metrolinx expect to award the contract in fall, with design work to begin shortly after, IO officials said in a press release. 

As part of the Mobilinx team, construction will be done by Astaldi, Hitachi, Amico, Bot and Salini Impregilo. Design will be handled by IBI Group, Hitachi, Morrison Hershfield, Arcadis and Daoust Lestage. Operation maintenance will be provided by Transdev, Hitachi, Astaldi and Salini Impregilo.

The Hurontario light-rail project includes construction of 11 miles of track connecting the Port Credit GO Transit station in Mississaugu to the Gateway Terminal in Brampton. Slated for completion in 2022, the project also includes a light-rail maintenance and storage facility.
