The Master Plan identified the need for LRT along the corridor between Port Credit in Mississauga and the Brampton GO Station, with good connections to other links in the municipal and regional transit network. TPAP is an environmental assessment process developed specifically for the approval of public transit projects. 2011In 2011, the LRT project began the Preliminary Design and Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) phase. This phase helped determine the cost of building the system, and further refined the plans based on design, integration, and affordability. 2014In August 2014, the Environmental Project Report was approved by the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, completing the Preliminary Design and TPAP. This approval applied only to the route identified in the previous Master Plan study (i.e. along Hurontario Street and Main Street). Following Brampton City Council Direction, an assessment of alternative LRT routes between the Gateway Terminal and the Brampton GO station was completed in Fall 2014.2015In October 2015, Brampton City Council directed staff to permanently eliminate any surface LRT route along Main Street between Nanwood Drive and Queen Street. The TPAP approved route was approved by council from the Brampton-Mississauga boundary to the Gateway Terminal at Steeles Avenue.2016In 2016, Council directed City staff to undertake a study for two alternative LRT routes on Kennedy Road and McLaughlin Road between the Gateway Terminal and the Brampton GO Station – the subject of this project. Where we are now... In September 2017 the Brampton LRT Extension Study (“the Study”) for alternative LRT routes along the Kennedy Road and McLaughlin Road corridors from the Gateway Terminal to the Brampton GO Station was started. It is currently in the pre-TPAP phase. The Study involves a new TPAP to evaluate alternative LRT routes along the two corridors (Kennedy Road and McLaughlin Road), since the approved TPAP applies only to the Main Street Corridor. A preferred LRT route will be recommended based on a number of criteria. The study outcomes will include the development of an operational plan; determination of construction staging and costs; and the establishment of an implementation plan. The City of Brampton and a team of experienced consultants are currently reviewing previous plans, studying the area’s existing conditions and identifying an initial long list of alternative routes for further analysis. Metrolinx is currently preparing for construction of the Hurontario LRT line between Port Credit and the Gateway Terminal, with an expected completion in 2022.
