Brothers Charleston Lewis and Danny Mitri are operating CAT 352 excavators, while Brother Brett Harrison and apprentice Olen Noel run the Manitowoc 300 crawler crane on-site. Brother Matthew Lorefice is operating a Case 621 loader as they continue construction for the Scarborough LRT extension project.

The Scarborough Subway Extension will bring the TTC’s Line 2 subway service nearly 8km farther into the city. Local 793 members are working at the Sheppard Avenue and McCowan Road site, unofficially known as the Sheppard East Station.

Replacing Line 3 will reduce travel times and improve access to jobs, schools and other vital destinations throughout Scarborough.

Contractors: Green Infrastructure Partners (GIP) and Strabag Canada
