The Billy Bishop Airport Tunnel Project
Ports Toronto (formerly Toronto Port Authority) owns and operates Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport located at the foot of Bathurst Street. Currently, passengers must take a ferry between the mainland and the island on which the airport is situated.
In March 2012, Ports Authority entered an agreement that follows a public private partnership model to build a pedestrian tunnel and improve access to and from the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.
In addition to facilitating pedestrian movement to and from the airport, the tunnel will carry City of Toronto water and sewage mains.
