Request for Qualifications Issued for Hurontario LRT

October 18, 2016

 

Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Metrolinx have issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for interested parties to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) project.

 

The RFQ outlines the scope of work required, which includes:

 

  • 20 kilometres of new dedicated rapid transit between Port Credit GO Station in Mississauga to the Gateway Terminal at Steeles Avenue in Brampton;
  • will serve 22 stops with connections to GO Transit's Milton and Lakeshore West rail lines, Mississauga MiWay, Brampton Züm, and the Mississauga Transitway BRT;
  • a maintenance and storage facility for the light rail vehicles at Highway 407; and
  • procurement of a fleet of light rail vehicles and operations of the system.

 

The Hurontario LRT project is an example of the Ontario government's commitment to invest in priority rapid transit to create an integrated transit system throughout the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GHTA). The Hurontario LRT project will mean a doubling of the corridor's capacity to move people, and significantly improved transit travel times. The LRT will help transform Hurontario Street into a vibrant people-oriented corridor connecting communities and accommodating anticipated growth.

 

The RFQ is the first step in the procurement process to select a team to deliver the project. IO and Metrolinx will evaluate submissions to prequalify project teams with the relevant experience and financial capacity to deliver a project of this size and complexity. Qualified teams will be invited to respond to a request for proposals in spring 2017.

 

Interested companies must register with www.merx.com to download the RFQ.

Project Overview

The Hurontario light rail transit (LRT) project will bring 20 kilometres of fast, reliable, rapid transit to the cities of Mississauga and Brampton along the Hurontario corridor.

New, modern light rail vehicles will travel in a dedicated right-of-way and serve 22 stops with connections to GO Transit’s Milton and Lakeshore West rail lines, Mississauga MiWay, Brampton Züm, and the Mississauga Transitway BRT.

Funded through a $1.4 billion commitment from the Province of Ontario, the Hurontario LRT is a signature project of the Moving Ontario Forward plan.

The Hurontario LRT will be significant benefit to the communities of Mississauga and Brampton, and be an integral component of the GTHA’s broader transportation network.

Metrolinx is working with the cities of Brampton and Mississauga to ready the project for procurement. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2018, with anticipated completion in 2022.
