The Lonsdale Tunnel is a freight railway tunnel in North Vancouver, British Columbia, running under Lonsdale Avenue, and running parallel to Esplanade Ave between St. Georges and Chesterfield Ave.

It was built by the Vancouver Harbour and Wharves Commission from 1928 to separate industrial freight from traffic and street cars on Lonsdale Ave and connect the Pacific Great Eastern Railway to the new Second Narrows Bridge.
