Metrolinx and Infrastructure Ontario last week selected Stantec to provide technical advice for the Hurontario light-rail project, which will connect Mississauga and Brampton, Ontario. 

As lead technical adviser, Stantec will provide design, construction and commissioning oversight of the 11-mile Hurontario light-rail line and a rail-car operation, maintenance and storage facility, Stantec officials said in a press release.

The service will run electric trains between the Port Credit GO rail station to the Brampton Gateway Terminal. 

Stantec will be supported locally by HDR.

After completion, the light-rail 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.
