Located in the City of Mississauga, this Capital Works project involved the extension of Eastgate Parkway -a major arterial road- from Dixie Road to Eglinton Avenue. It included a storm outfall into Etobicoke Creek, relocation of watermains, and crossings of major oil, and gas pipelines.
Condrain was the general contractor for the project, which was designed by Dillon who acted as consulting engineers for the City of Mississauga. The project featured 3 subcontractors including C & M McNally, Toronto Zenith Contracting, and Con-Strada Construction.
Construction included 1.5 kilometres of 4-lane, divided carriageway arterial road. Condrain installed 1.8 kilometres of 1800-3000 mm diameter storm sewer of which one kilometre was tunnelled through shale bedrock. C & M McNally provided tunnelling via a tunnel-boring machine. The concrete tunnel lining was poured using collapsible formwork; Condrain provided the tunnel shafts and coordinated the integration of the tunnel work.
The project extended over two construction seasons and was completed in 1994 within the stipulated 200 working days. Maintenance periods ended in 1995 without problems arising.
