Students Put Their Mark On Construction Of The New Champlain Bridge

MP Pablo Rodriguez, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, joined today with elementary students from Verdun, to officially introduce “Thor la fourmi” (Thor the Ant) as the newest member of the building crew for the new Champlain Bridge. Like an ant, Thor is capable of carrying many times its own weight. In this case, the newly dubbed transporter will move the bridge’s 650 tonne concrete footings being fabricated on the west jetty near L’Île-des-Soeurs.
