Can’t Build a Bridge? Fine, We’ll Build a Tunnel!

The Toronto Star is reporting that Porter would like to build a tunnel connecting the island airport with the mainland.

The tunnel would be 8 metres wide, 4 metres high and outfitted with moving sidewalks for passengers of upstart Porter Airlines, which began flying from the airport in 2006.

So, the tunnel would only accommodate pedestrian traffic, leaving the 2 min ferry ride for vehicles. Could this be a compromise amongst the residents of the city?

A public opinion poll commissioned by the port authority and conducted in early July showed 62 per cent of Torontonians support the construction of a pedestrian tunnel with 31 per cent opposing.
