Work and mitigation measures

The dismantling operations will be carried out from September 2020 to January 2021. The company is doing everything it can to keep inconveniences to the area’s residents and businesses to a minimum and cooperate with all stakeholders to find solutions with the least impact.

Dismantling of the remainder of the Saint-Maxime–Marie-Victorin line.

As agreed with Longueuil’s municipal government, a segment of the old Saint‑Maxime–Marie‑Victorin line will be dismantled earlier than initially planned so that a portion of Boulevard La Fayette can be refurbished, which the city plans to do in 2021. This is the priority segment that will be dismantled in 2020.
