Stations in this sector

Île-des-Sœurs Station. Île-des-Sœurs station underwent unique architectural treatment due to its proximity to the Samuel De Champlain Bridge. It was designed with a public square to facilitate access to the station and integrate harmoniously into its environment. The underground walkway beneath the station will also make it easier to connect the northern and southern areas of the island.Image for indicative purposes only.

Work in progress

 

REM tests

In anticipation of the commissioning of the first REM segment in the spring of 2023, dynamic testing of all REM components from the South Shore to Central Station continues. They will start at a moderate speed in November 2022 and then pick up speed until commissioning. Once the dynamic tests are completed, in 2023, a trial run will take place to test commercial service. For about a month, the system will run on schedule, approximately 20 hours a day, but without passengers. Once the required reliability is achieved, the REM will be able to open to the public.

 

The Île-des-Sœurs sector 

Finishing work is underway in the Île-des-Soeurs area. Work is also continuing on accesses to the station.

 

Work in the Sud-Ouest sector 

In Griffintown, work is nearing completion. In the Pointe-Saint-Charles sector, the rehabilitation of Marc-Cantin Street is continuing. The rehabilitation of Wellington Street will begin in the spring/summer of 2023.

 

Work on Central, McGill and Édouard-Montpetit stations and the Mont-Royal tunnel

The Central Station will be completed by the end of 2022. Interior work at the Édouard-Montpetit station is continuing. The McGill station and its technical rooms are being built.
