Stations in this sector
The Sunnybrooke and Pierrefonds-Roxboro sector
Construction will continue on the Sunnybrooke and Pierrefonds-Roxboro stations in 2023. During the first months of the year, the curtain walls, a distinctive feature of the REM stations, will be installed. At the same time, the teams will proceed with the rehabilitation of Alexander Street, Sunnybrooke Boulevard, 11th Avenue and Des Sources Boulevard.
The Anse-à-l’Orme sector
The Anse-à-l’Orme station building and the West Island maintenance centre are nearing completion. The year 2023 will essentially be devoted to finalizing the building envelope, interior electrical and mechanical work, as well as exterior design (parking, landscaping, etc.) for the Des Sources, Fairview-Point-Claire and Kirkland stations.
The Technoparc and Airport sector
In 2022, Alice completed building the tunnel that links the Marie-Curie and YUL-Aéroport-Montréal-Trudeau stations. Construction of these two stations will also continue in 2023.
The REM will run in part on existing rail corridors. To ensure safety on this high frequency network, there will be no grade crossings. In Pierrefonds-Roxboro, the grade crossings on Alexander Street and Sunnybrooke Boulevard will be transformed into railway overpasses. The grade crossings at 11th Avenue, Gouin Boulevard West and Des Sources Boulevard will be eliminated with the construction of a 1.6-kilometre elevated structure.

The Des Sources and Saint-Anne-de-Bellevue stations will feature parking lots to facilitate access for drivers. Discussions are under way with various partners to determine the number of spaces that will be available at the Fairview-Pointe-Claire and Kirkland stations. At the Pierrefonds-Roxboro and Sunnybrooke stations, REM users can park in the existing parking spaces for the Deux-Montagnes line.
We also intend to focus on a sustainable solution of active and public transit. Bus networks in various South Shore municipalities will be revised to optimize feeder service to REM’s stations. The buses will stop near the station to ensure quick and efficient transfers to REM's metro cars. This collaboration with transit companies will continue throughout the project to ensure optimal feeder service as soon as the REM is put into service.
There are no plans to build a pedestrian bridge over Highway 40 as part of the REM project. The various municipalities are responsible for urban development around the stations.
