The Underpass between Wabush and Labrador City
If you drive between Wabush and Labrador City, you have to cross train tracks. Those tracks are used by iron ore trains that travel to ports in and around Sept-Iles Quebec. But with mine expansion and the opening of bloom lake across the border, the trains are longer and more frequent. And at times, the wait can be up to twenty minutes. The company that operates the mine is now working on a solution- an underpass. Yesterday, reporter Mike Power visited the site with Hubert Vallee. He’s the Vice President of expansion in Eastern Canada for Cliffs Natural Resources. He’s also the person who proposed the underpass, and he explains why.
