There’s another vantage point on work on – and into – the new rail passage in the heart of some of the busiest highway traffic in Canada. We have some good video taken of the mighty Highway 401 and 409 Rail Tunnel project.  

Take a trip into the Highway 401 and 409 Rail Tunnel project.

We’ve had lots of stories on the big dig, under some of the busiest highways in the country, but this new drone footage caught our eye.

This view shows the work in building a twin rail tunnel structure underneath 21 live lanes of traffic, and supports GO Expansion on the Kitchener line. The tunnels will accommodate future track, enabling more frequent, two-way, all-day train service.

Here’s a past story on the project.
