Burnhamthorpe Water Project reaches milestone
A major section of watermain tunnelling beneath Burnhamthorpe Road is complete.
The tunnelling of the 1500 mm diameter watermain between Cawthra Road and Grand Park Drive was finished in 2 runs: Hurontario eastward to Cawthra, and Hurontario westward to Grand Park.
The contractor is now installing the concrete pressure pipes within the tunnel.
Sanitary sewer tunnelling also underway
Tunnelling for a 1200 mm diameter sanitary sewer on Burnhamthorpe Road, Duke of York Boulevard and Centre View Drive is also taking place.
- Is building the second-last shaft at Centre View and Duke of York, with construction of the final shaft at Centre View and City Centre to follow. The final sanitary sewer tunnel drive will begin once these shafts are complete.
- Is working day and night in several areas to complete work in the Mississauga City Centre (MCC) this winter. We expect the construction on the northern, western and eastern edges of this project will be finished by 2021.
