Impacts and mitigation measures

The REM project office and NouvLR consortium’s goal is to mitigate impact on surrounding residents and ensure everyone’s safety by implementing all appropriate measures.

  • This work will generate noise, vibration and dust. Mitigation measures will be implemented as needed to mitigate impacts at the source (acoustic enclosures, low-noise equipment, white noise vehicles). In order to ensure the project’s noise, vibration and air quality criteria are met, monitoring by environmental experts will take place throughout the work.
  • Some of the work will require truck traffic in the neighbourhood; long-term traffic pattern changes are also in place to minimize construction traffic and secure the construction zones. Flaggers located around the perimeter of the construction site will ensure pedestrian safety.

Permanent obstructions

Obstructions and logistics zones have been set up around the future Canora station to prepare for the work:

  • The west logistics zone is on Dunkirk Road, between Jean-Talon Street West and Kirkfield Avenue. Dunkirk Road will be closed to car traffic. Pedestrians and cyclists will be redirected to a temporary sidewalk running along Dunkirk park to Kirkfield Avenue. Kirkfield Avenue will remain open to local traffic and will allow continuous access to the L’Ombrière.ca shop. This logistics zone will be maintained during the construction of the future Canora station.
  • On the west side, a segment of Dunkirk Road, between Glencoe and Montgomery avenues, has also been set up to serve as a logistics zone to facilitate trucking operations and moving equipment. This logistics zone will be maintained during the construction of the future Canora station.
  • The east logistics zone is at the corner of Canora Road and Jean-Talon Street West. One traffic lane is closed on Canora Road, between Brookfield Avenue and Jean-Talon Street West, as well as on Jean-Talon Street West from Canora Road to Dunkirk Road. Pedestrian access on the east side sidewalk is maintained, as is access to driveways.
  • Flaggers and signage around the perimeter of the construction site will ensure pedestrian safety and traffic flow.

Obstructions and logistics zones have been set up around the future Mont-Royal station to prepare for the work:

  • Site trailers have been set up in the logistics zone on Canora Road between Laird and Graham boulevards, which means that a number of parking spots on Canora Road have been removed. The logistics zone will be maintained during the construction of the future Mont-Royal station.
  • From August to November 2019, one of the site trailers in downtown Mont-Royal will be moved to a lane on Cornwall Avenue on the north side of the railway bridge, in order to reduce the impact on central parking. One lane of Canora Road will be closed to vehicle traffic between Regent Street and a bit before the Laird Boulevard intersection. Parking in this zone will be prohibited for as long as this obstacle is in place. One traffic lane will be reduced on Cornwall Bridge and a pedestrian detour will be set up.
  • A segment of Dunkirk Road between Graham Boulevard and Hudson Avenue near the Pizzaiolle could be closed occasionally, depending on the work phase. Access to the Hudson alley and Pizzaiolle parking lot will be maintained.
  • Flaggers and signage around the perimeter of the construction site will ensure pedestrian safety and traffic flow.
