More than 40 LiUNA 183 members worked around-the-clock in January, to complete the new underpass for the Hazel McCallion LRT.

For 55 consecutive hours, the team including several companies and crews, used hydraulic jacks to push a push box , large concrete structure weighing more than 6,000 tonnes into place – a first in Ontario.

The QEW push box will be the permanent underpass for northbound Hurontario traffic, allowing space for the Hazel McCallion Line tracks through the existing underpass along with the southbound Hurontario traffic.
