To access the Billy Bishop Toronto airport, there is a Pedestrian Tunnel project connecting the downtown to the airport. This Toronto tunnel has won the Tunneling Association of Canada TAC 2014 Canadian Project Award and designed by Brampton-based engineering firm responsible for designing the underwater excavation plan.
Once the tunnel is completed, it will allow pedestrians the ease of traveling across to the airport in six minutes by using four moving sidewalks and six elevators. This unique trait eliminates much of the need for shuttle services that most airports rely upon.
