  • The Thorold Tunnel
    months when the Canal was drained A trench was dug and concrete sections shaped like tubes were poured to form the tunnel During the summer months the end sections of the tunnel were constructed allowing shipping to continue A sidewalk was built on the westbound side of the tunnel allowing access to pedestrians through the tunnel The air in the tunnel is constantly monitored for carbon monoxide and if needed using an elaborate fan system can be changed within 20 seconds The lighting in the tunnel is controlled by photosensors that operate the lights in stages to provide light levels comparable to those outside the tunnel This is to reduce the chances of being blinded by a dark tunnel or emerging from a well lit tunnel into the darkness of night Traffic signals are mounted to the ceiling to control traffic during maintenance or emergency situations within the tunnel For more information on the Thorold Tunnel contact Daniel Saint Laurent at 905 227 5516 Technical Information Length 840 metres or 84 kilometres Height 4 5 metres Lanes two westbound two eastbound Speed 80 km h Roof thickness 1 8 metres of reinforced concrete Wall thickness 1 5 to 1 8
