AECOM will provide technical advisory services on the Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) project in Mississauga and Brampton, Canada, and the Hamilton LRT project in Hamilton, Canada, for Metrolinx, an agency of the Government of Ontario.

The seven-year contract has an approximate $78-million aggregate maximum value. The Hurontario LRT and Hamilton LRT projects are part of the largest infrastructure investment in Ontario’s history and are expected to have an impressive impact on regional transit by providing crucial links between many of the existing lines, as well as on the local economy, by creating jobs and attracting more investments in the area.

AECOM will lead the development of the reference concept designs, project specific output specifications and related design and planning activities; provide assistance with the Alternative Financing and Procurement request for quotation/request for proposal development and related in-market support; and support the construction and implementation phases providing technical compliance oversight and acting in an associated advisory role.

The Hurontario LRT project will consist of 12 miles of new light rail installation along Hurontario Street from Port Credit GO Station to Brampton Gateway Terminal. Twenty-two stops and a service loop in the downtown Mississauga City Centre/Square One area will be included, as well as a maintenance storage facility in the Highway 407 area.

The Hamilton LRT project will include approximately eight miles of new light rail that will connect McMaster University through downtown Hamilton to Queenston Circle as well as a connection to the West Harbor GO Station and potentially the waterfront. The project also includes a high-order pedestrian connection to the Hamilton GO Centre Station, and a maintenance and storage facility.

The estimated $778 million capital cost for this project will also be provincially funded.
