Episode 1: Connecting with the past, building the future

Édouard-Montpetit station

Jean-Philippe Pelletier (REM project office), Thomas Fortin (NouvLR consortium), Marie-Hélène Asselin and Bilal Ibrahim (Polytechnique students) explore the Édouard-Montpetit construction site. This highly complex project entails digging 70 metres below ground to connect the REM to the train tunnel under Mount Royal, which was built over a century ago, in 1918. The project is realizing the original metro plan presented by Jean Drapeau in 1961 and is partially based on the initial plans for the Édouard-Montpetit station in 1983.
