Construction underway on Bloor/Dundas pedestrian tunnel

Construction underway on Bloor/Dundas pedestrian tunnel

TORONTO — Metrolinx has announced that construction of a new pedestrian tunnel between Bloor GO/UP station and the Dundas West TTC station in Toronto is currently underway.

The contract for the construction of a pedestrian connection between the two transit stations was awarded to Kenaidan Contractors last summer.

The connection will shorten the distance between the two stations. It currently takes about five to eight minutes to walk the 500 metres between both stations. The new pedestrian tunnel will be weather-proof and will shorten the distance to 100 metres that can be walked in two minutes, stated a recent release.

The project includes constructing a new concourse in the lower level of The Crossways’ building, within the parking structure, and providing elevator access to the TTC platform level; building two elevators and a stairwell connecting GO’s existing Bloor tunnel and the new TTC concourse; and creating a new electrical room with an upgraded emergency back-up and life-safety systems in case of power outages.
