Nature of work

Work to enclose the buildings will continue this spring, as some of the future stations' distinctive architectural elements, such as the glass walls and wood ceilings, are brought to life.

Pictured here is the installation of glass walls at the Bois-Franc station, as an indication.

Here is an overview of the work to be done in the coming months (dates are subject to change):

Permanent obstructions

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

  • West side:
    • Dunkirk Road is closed to car traffic, between Jean-Talon Street West and Kirkfield Avenue, for the duration of the work. Pedestrians and cyclists are being 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. 
    • Dunkirk Road is closed to car traffic, between Glencoe Avenue and Montgomery Avenue, for the duration of the work. One lane on Glencoe Avenue will also be closed to set up site trailers to ensure mandatory hygiene measures due to the COVID-19 situation. Pedestrian access has been maintained west of the Montgomery dog park.
  • East side:
    • Canora Road is closed to car traffic between Brookfield Avenue and Jean-Talon Street West. Pedestrian access to the sidewalk on the east side of the road and access to driveways have been maintained.
    • The closure of two lanes on Jean-Talon West will alternate according to the phases of reconstruction work on the Jean-Talon Bridge.
  • Flaggers and signage around the perimeter of the construction site will ensure pedestrian safety and traffic flow.

In addition to the complete closure of the Cornwall Bridge until May 2021, obstructions and logistical zones have been set up around the future Mont-Royal station to prepare for the work:

  • West side: 
    • Dunkirk Road is closed to car traffic, between Kindersley Avenue and Graham Boulevard, but access to the La Pizzaiolle parking lot will be maintained.
    • Certain sidewalks have been reconfigured to allow traffic in both directions on the Laird/Graham Bridge.
  • East side:
    • Parking and one lane have been removed on Canora Road between Cornwall Avenue and Laird Boulevard, and Canora Road is closed to car traffic between Laird Boulevard and Regent Road.
    • Certain sidewalks have been reconfigured to allow traffic in both directions on the Laird/Graham Bridge.
  • Flaggers and signage around the perimeter of the construction site will ensure pedestrian safety and traffic flow.
