On April 21, 2015, the Ontario government committed to full provincial funding, totalling $1.6B, of the 23 km LRT project proposed along Hurontario and Main Streets in Mississauga and Brampton, between Port Credit and downtown Brampton. Transport Action Ontario welcomes this announcement. However, while this project has been well accepted in Mississauga, there has been debate in Brampton about the best route through or around the heritage area on Main Street. The issue will be resolved by Brampton Council in July.
Transport Action Ontario has published a letter of support for the Main Street route, which is strongly recommended by both Metrolinx and Brampton City staff. The letter can be viewed here: TAO-letter-BramptonLRT2015-06-17
