Presented by The Plan Magazine, the Pickering GO Pedestrian Bridge has been shortlisted in this year’s The Plan Awards in the Transport category.
This landmark 820-ft-long (250m) landmark pedestrian bridge is one of the longest enclosed foot bridges in the world, traversing 6 railway lines and 14 lanes of traffic across Highway 401, the busiest highway in North America. The bridge connects the Town of Pickering, one of the fastest growing communities in Canada, to its busy GO Transit hub, part of a regional network of trains and buses servicing the Greater Toronto Area in Southern Ontario. Due to its location at the threshold between the Cities of Toronto and Pickering, the bridge serves a striking marker of entry into both cities and a symbol of innovation across the metropolitan region.
