Work for identifying utilities through hydro-excavation, drainage pipe scrubbing and inspection, as well as surveying

Construction activities
Weekends of June 2/3 and 9/10, schedule: 7 a.m. To 7 p.m.
Montréal (Centre and Airport)

Where: In the railway right-of-way, primarily in the vicinity of the Canora and Mont-Royal Stations
 

Nature of the work

The work consists of identifying utilities through hydro-excavation, drainage pipe scrubbing and inspection, as well as surveying. This important step will provide critical data for designing the REM’s structures and stations.

Hydro-excavation will be conducted in this sector. Hydro-excavation is the process of digging withpressurized water and vacuuming the soil or debris as digging progresses. This technique is safe, limits the impact on the immediate environment, generates no dust and reduces the risk of damaging underground infrastructures.
 

Impacts and mitigation measures planned

This identification work may generate noise. In order to minimize this, acoustic screens will be installed around the trucks.
