he price tag on the building of the Big Pipe from Fifth Line South to Trafalgar Rd. has gone up-- yet again. The Big Pipe brings water and wastewater servicing from Lake Ontario to service the Town of Halton Hills industrial area, the 401-407 Gateway Business Park (401 Corridor). After tenders were opened last fall, low bids put the construction at another $200,000 over-budget. Originally construction dollars were set at $7.2 million, and that climbed two years later to $9.46 million, and now to $9.65 million. The costs are due to increased tunneling, greater sewer depths, and escalations in costs related to property acquisition and materials. The five developers benefiting from the Pipe, will be pick up the extra cost. They are TransCanada Energy Ltd., the Lawrence Avenue Group 2000 Inc., Mold-Masters, John and Anne Zdunic and P.A.Z. Properties Corp. Due to the delays in awarding the tenders and getting extra cash from the developers, the area won't be fully serviced now until mid2008.
