Local 793 retiree Randy Synnott is on-site installing the new transmission watermain from Letitia St. to Wellington St. in Barrie.

Brother Synnott hoists pipe/tunnel sections into the shaft by operating a Kobelco CK110G-2, 110-ton crawler crane. The shaft is 36m deep, with the tunnel running at approximately a distance of 160m.

The project includes the relocation of the existing storm sewer, sanitary sewer, and distribution watermain impacted by the Ministry of Transportation’s Sunnidale Rd bridge replacement project. The new and relocated watermains will travel under Highway 400 through a new trenchless crossing north of Sunnidale Rd.
