Several federal, provincial and municipal politicians and officials gathered at a construction site in Mississauga Friday, November 29 to mark the official start of work on the western section of the Mississauga Transitway.

Opening in 2016, the Mississauga Transitway west segment is a two-lane, 1.5- kilometre (one mile) bus-only road on the north side of Highway 403, with two new “state-of-the-art” stations at Winston Churchill Boulevard and Erin Mills Parkway. MiWay and GO Transit buses will operate along the Transitway.

Metrolinx is building the west segment between Winston Churchill and Erin Mills. The City of Mississauga is constructing the eastern corridor. Part of the eastern section opens in 2014 with stations at Central Parkway, Cawthra Road, Tomken Road and Dixie Road.

In 2016, the 18-kilometre transitway will have 12 stations, between Winston Churchill Boulevard in the east and Renforth Drive in the east. From the west, buses will operate along the bus-only roadway between Winston Churchill and Erin Mills, then onto the current bus-only lanes on Highway 403 between Erin Mills Parkway and Mississauga’s City Centre area along Centre View Drive and Rathburn Road West. Buses then travel along a bus-only roadway parallel to Highway 403 and north of Eastgate Parkway and Eglinton Avenue to Renforth Station. From there, buses will continue to Pearson International Airport and the TTC’s Islington Station.

The Mississauga Transitway project is a partnership among all levels of government. The Government of Canada is contributing as much as $83 million to the project through the Canada Strategic Infrastructure Fund: $59 million to the City of Mississauga for the east segment and $24 million to Metrolinx for the west segment. The Province of Ontario has provided $65 million to the City of Mississauga to support the project and is contributing another $48 million to Metrolinx for, a Transport Canada news release say, “investments in GO Transit assets related to the transitway”. The City of Mississauga and Metrolinx are funding the remaining project costs.
