Stretch of Deux-Montagnes line will shut down due to REM construction

Apr 25 2018, 5:04 pm

Commuters on the Deux-Montagnes train line will face a service cut on Friday evenings and weekends due to the construction of the new REM light-rail transit system.

As of April 27, there will be no weekend service on the Deux-Montagnes commuter until further notice.

“The work will speed up during the weekends in an effort to minimize the impact on weekday trains in 2018 and 2019,” said Mobilité Montréal, in a release.

At the end of June 2018, a segment of the Deux­-Montagnes line will run along a single track in the Ville Mont‑Royal sector so that new stations can be built.

Beginning in early 2020 for approximately 24 months, the whole section of the Deux‑Montagnes line between Du Ruisseau and Central Station will be replaced by a bus service, due to the REM construction.

Additional construction

A reduction in lanes will take place on Highway 10 near the current Panama bus terminal, beginning in 2019.

In downtown Montreal, excavation work will start in the fall of 2018 on the east side of McGill College Avenue, between Sainte-Catherine Street and De Maisonneuve Boulevard.
