COVID-19: Construction activities to resume on May 11
Update | April 29, 2020
Following the Québec government’s most recent directives, the Réseau express métropolitain (REM) construction sites will resume activities as of May 11. All measures to ensure workers’ health and safety will be implemented and rigorously enforced. The REM, NouvLR and GPMM management teams will systematically and regularly monitor the situation with the relevant authorities.
With this lifting of the government directives that had suspended all construction site activities, we will resume the work planned to ensure the modernization of the Deux-Montagnes line and the Mont-Royal Tunnel.
The work will require the complete closure of the section of the Deux Montagnes line between Du Ruisseau station and Central Station as of May 11 and will be carried out in coordination with Mobility Montréal for the implementation of mitigation measures.
As a result of the most recent directives from the Government of Quebec, all REM work sites remain inactive until restrictions are lifted.
This situation also applies to the closure of the Mont-Royal Tunnel, which was scheduled for March 30, 2020. The exo5 Mascouche and exo6 Deux-Montagnes train lines will continue to operate. Once the government’s directives are lifted, we will resume the scheduled work in coordination with our partners.
Design and studies continue
During this exceptional period, our office employees—particularly the design and engineering teams—will be fully operational and continue to make progress while working remotely.
We will continue to systematically and regularly monitor the situation with the relevant authorities. Further communications will follow shortly.
