The first of two bridges that will take your breath away have arrived in Toronto after making the long journey by sea from Dartmouth, NS.
These bridges are part of what Toronto Mayor, John Tory, calls “one of the largest waterfront revitalization projects in the world.”
Toronto is building Villers Island, a brand new land mass on its waterfront. The two bridges made in Nova Scotia by Cherubini Metal Works will connect the thousands that will live there to the rest of Toronto.
According to Waterfront Toronto it is hoped that the bridges will become new Toronto landmarks.
The bridges are not the first notable items from Dartmouth, NS to find a home on the Toronto waterfront. The old Dartmouth III ferry that transited passengers across Halifax Harbour for years has been on Toronto’s waterfront since 2017. It was bought from Halifax by Toronto Island Transit Service for $100,000.
