I would like to take this opportunity to thank the thousands of people who came out on May 24th to celebrate the opening of the Airport Trail tunnel.
This event was an opportunity to not only view the award winning tunnel, but to recognize the hard work, commitment and cooperation of the many people who delivered this piece of vital infrastructure on budget and on time!
Often the City is reactive when addressing growth, but the tunnel is an example of preparing for the ongoing and future residential and business development in the city. The Airport Trail tunnel will provide an alternate route to-and-from the airport as well as serve as an important east-west connection. Ultimately, it will link Stony Trail East all the way to Centre Street. With more than 60,000 people and thousands of jobs anticipated for the northeast quadrant over the next 10 – 15 years, the tunnel will be invaluable!
I am proud to have been a part of this incredible journey and I would like to thank all of you for your support of the Airport Trail tunnel.
