GO Train commuters in Mississauga have had about 100 parking spaces reopened at a busy station on the city’s southern edge.
Parking spaces at Port Credit GO Station have been closed since July 2022 due to construction related to the Hazel McCallion Line. When the line opens later, it will be an 18-kilometre light rail transit route that will run from south Mississauga to Brampton via Hurontario Street. 2024 or early next year.
Officials with Metrolinx, the state agency responsible for large-scale LRT projects, announced this week that “approximately 100 additional parking spaces” at Port Credit GO are now available again.
Project leaders added that the space, located near a stream and railroad tracks, was reopened after snow removal to allow for line painting.
Meanwhile, daily work continues along the Hazel McCallion Line, including just a short distance from Port Credit GO. Drivers and area residents along Hurontario Street from Park Street North to the QEW will face delays and other minor disruptions throughout 2024.
Once completed, the $4.6 billion Hazel McCallion Line will take passengers from Port Credit GO in south Mississauga to Brampton north via Hurontario Street, making 19 stops along the way.
Metrolinx is currently evaluating the feasibility of extending the line three kilometers into downtown Brampton and reintroducing the Downtown Loop into Mississauga’s city center. The latter component adds some stops to the route.
The agency plans to report to the state government in the coming days on its plans to implement these additions.
