Nature of the work

The structure of the REM on the West Island will be elevated, from the Des Sources station to the Saint-Anne-de-Bellevue station. For work on the elevated portion of the route, pillars will need to be installed along the former Doney railway spur, as well as along Highway 40 at Fairview Pointe-Claire.

Work will take place from 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Work outside this time period may be necessary to mobilize and demobilize required equipment and to clean up the site.

Impacts and mitigation measures

Just as for any construction site, work will have an impact on residents in the vicinity; they will be affected by noise, vibrations, dust, frequent use of trucks and traffic hindrances. Mitigation measures will be implemented to minimize the impacts. The REM project office and NouvLR consortium’s goal is to prevent or minimize impact on surrounding residents as much as possible and ensure safety by implementing all appropriate measures.
