Local 793 members are working hard for Mammoet assembling the tunnel boring machine (TBM), which arrived in Scarborough from the Port of Oshawa this week.

Come spring, the Scarborough tunnel boring machine will begin burrowing a single 7.8 kilometre-long tunnel from Sheppard and McCowan to Kennedy Station, clearing an underground pathway for the three-stop Scarborough Subway Extension.
