“During the inspectors’ intervention on May 24, they noted that recovery conditions had been met in most of the tunnel. “As a result, the partial resumption of work has been authorized,” Marie-Claude Normandin, the commission’s communications officer, said Friday afternoon on TVA Nouvelles.

“The project manager sent the ventilation plan as well as the procedures required by the National Science, Technology, Engineering and Technology Council,” she adds.

On May 10, two workers suffered carbon monoxide poisoning. CNESST had requested that work be halted after the inspection was conducted.

They were carrying out demolition work in one of the two tunnels.

Fortunately, they were only exposed to it for a short period before being transported abroad.

“CNESST is closely monitoring the file and remains in contact with the project manager to ensure compliance with workplace health and safety regulations,” Ms. Normandin emphasized.

The effects of the closure are still unknown at the time of writing.
