Construction of the elevated structure and Kirkland station
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.
In your sector, work will be carried out according to the following schedule:
- Fall 2018 to fall 2019: relocation of public utilities
- Fall 2018: brush clearing and tree cutting
- Summer 2019: disturbance of first layer of soil, construction of access roads
- Spring 2019 to fall 2019: construction of the elevated track superstructure (pile driving)
- Summer 2019 to spring 2020: construction of the elevated track superstructure (columns)
- Spring 2020 to spring 2021: construction of the elevated track superstructure (installation of segmented beams)
- Spring 2021: beginning of construction of the station
- Spring 2022: restoration and final landscaping work
The current sequence is subject to change without notice.
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.
