Hazel McCallion Line - Frequently Asked Questions
If you have questions about what’s going on in your neighbourhood, we’d like to hear from you. Here’s how to get in touch with the Hazel McCallion Line team:
Port Credit GO station is the site of the Hazel McCallion Line (also called the Hurontario LRT) Mississauga terminus station that will be underground, so work has started to prepare for excavation and shoring. There are laydown areas on both the north and south sides of the station, so please be aware of signage around the station and follow only marked pedestrian/cyclist/vehicle access routes.
There are two ongoing projects at Port Credit GO including important accessibility upgrades and works for the future Hazel McCallion Line. For those who require parking at the station, there are reserved spots available at www.gotransit.com/en/stations-stops-parking/reservedparking. There are also large parking garages available one stop to the west at Clarkson GO.
Opportunities on the project
Mobilinx is the contractor responsible for design, construction, and 30-year operations and maintenance of the Hazel McCallion Line. Information on procurement opportunities are posted at www.mobilinx.ca/opportunities.
The Hazel McCallion Line will run above ground on a semi-exclusive guideway (segregated centre-running LRT) with some interaction with regular traffic. Traffic will only be permitted to cross the tracks at select locations, typically major streets with signalized intersections. At minor side streets, traffic will not be permitted to cross the tracks, either turning left or going straight through. U-turns will be permitted at some locations to maintain access to all locations.
Throughout the pandemic, transit construction projects have been considered an essential service by the province therefore, construction has moved forward on all projects. We are aware that the new normal post-COVID may look very different for transit and we have begun looking very closely at all of our policies and procedures to ensure we adapt appropriately. As we move forward we know that building complete communities with good access to transit will continue to be important.
Metrolinx and Mobilinx recognize that trees are very important and are working closely with the Cities of Mississauga and Brampton to help identify planting and compensation requirements for tree removal on both city and private property. An arborist is being engaged to ensure proper arboriculture techniques are employed prior to and during construction activities and to confirm the preservation or removal requirements for trees located on private property.
Yes, key accessibility features in all our LRT projects include:
- Tactile guidance tiles in stations and centre platform stops
- Enhanced intercoms that are accessible for customers who are hard of hearing (all intercoms) deaf and non-verbal (some intercoms)
- Elevator redundancy at interchange stations
- Audible and visual next stop announcement
- All-door boarding on vehicles
We're transforming the Kitchener Line into a two-way, all-day rapid transit line.
Improvements are underway along the Lakeshore West Line to support more frequent, faster service.
