Pedestrian Bridge

Pickering's fully enclosed landmark pedestrian bridge spans 14 lanes of Highway 401, Canada's busiest transportation link, interconnecting our main mobility hub with our emerging City Centre. Residents and commuters alike now enjoy safe, easy and sheltered access to an integrated transportation network, shopping, services and home.

The bridge continues to play a significant role in the dramatic transformation of our City Centre, linking the Pickering GO Station to our Class 'A', LEED-Gold office tower, Durham College/Centennial College Joint Learning Centre, Pickering Town Centre, new City Centre restaurants, and 500-vehicle GO Transit parking deck.

Construction Update

Accessibility is key to the design of the bridge, with elevator access at both the north and south landings. Work is underway to install two additional elevators at platform-level.

Installation of the architectural cladding and LED lighting is expected to be complete by the end of 2015. The bridge will serve as an iconic, luminous landmark, signifying where Pickering and Durham Region begin.

Funding

This multimillion dollar project was funded by the federal and provincial governments, and Metrolinx.
