Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Metrolinx have chosen Mobilinx consortium as the preferred proponent to build the C$1.4bn ($1.11bn) Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) in Ontario, Canada.
Mobilinx will be responsible for the design, build, financing, operation and maintenance of the rail project.
The Hurontario LRT project will run through and connect Mississauga and Brampton.
In August 2017, three teams were shortlisted based on their construction, design, operation and maintenance capability, experience, qualified personnel and financial capacity to deliver the project.
The Mobilinx consortium includes John Laing, Astaldi, Hitachi, Transdev, Amico Concessions and Salini Impregilo as applicant leads. National Bank and HSBC joined the team as the financial advisers.
Other members of the Mobilinx team include Amico, Bot, IBI Group, Hitachi, Morrison Hershfield, Arcadis and Daoust Lestage.

Hurontario LRT’s development will involve the construction of roughly 18km of dedicated rapid transit between Port Credit GO station in Mississauga to the gateway terminal at Steeles Avenue in Brampton.
The transit will comprise 19 stops, with connections to GO Transit’s Milton and Lakeshore West rail lines.
As a part of the project, Mobilinx will also build a maintenance and storage facility for the light-rail vehicles in the south of Highway 407 and west of Kennedy Road.
IO and Metrolinx issued the request for proposal in June 2017. The contract is expected to be awarded by the end of this year. Design work will commence soon after.
Hurontario LRT is being delivered using IO’s alternative financing and procurement (AFP) delivery model.
The rail network is expected to become operational by 2022.
