November has been an exciting month in the construction of Billy Bishop Airport’s new pedestrian tunnel, with the pouring of the tunnel’s Mainland Pavilion concrete floor at grade having been completed on November 13 and one of two City of Toronto water main connections – built into the tunnel’s design to save Toronto taxpayers an estimated $10 million in duplicate construction efforts – being hooked-up on November 14.

Over the last six months, the tunnel’s concrete liner, the island-side atrium’s roofing system, as well as the lowering of the escalator frames into place were finished. The final stages of construction will include the completion of the tunnel’s connecting terminal structures, installation of the moving walkways, elevators and landscaping, as well as final finishing work.

In October, the tunnel was awarded the 2014 Canadian Project of the Year by the Tunnelling Association of Canada, selected for its innovative and unique design, as well as the logistical accomplishment achieved by the project team which led the construction of the tunnel without interrupting traveller service at Canada’s ninth busiest airports.

When it opens, the pedestrian tunnel will provide travellers with access to and from Billy Bishop Airport in less than six minutes.
