“This has been a long time coming,” said Finance Minister Jim Flaherty on Tuesday, announcing that plans to build a new airport on the site will begin immediately, with the goal of having it complete by 2027. “It’s 41 years later. The GTA has grown. Pickering has grown. The demand is here.”
The airport will border Regional Road 7 and Brock Rd in Clarington, but most importantly, would be just a short distance north of Highway 407.
