On July 30, 2015, PortsToronto opened the new pedestrian tunnel to Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, providing travellers with a fast, reliable and convenient way to access the airport. Before then Billy Bishop Airport, located on Toronto Island, was only accessible by ferry. Now, a new 853-foot, P3-funded pedestrian tunnel runs across the Western Channel of Lake Ontario, constructed within the bedrock 100 feet beneath the surface of the lake. The tunnel serves as the first land-link between Toronto’s mainland and the island.
