Crémazie station now freshly renovated
After several months of major repairs, Crémazie station is now more welcoming and brighter. No fewer than 90,000 ceramic wall pieces and 80,000 ceramic floor tiles have been replaced. See the results in pictures!
Do you find the station’s look hasn’t changed much? That’s because our architects sought to respect the station’s spirit and appearance. So much so that they came up with wall and floor ceramics perfectly identical to the original ones installed over 50 years ago!
No fewer than 176 granite steps were replaced throughout the station. However, the steps linking the street level to the mezzanine level were retained, because they had already been changed.
Greatly appreciated by both occasional and habitual riders, the new signage has a spectacular visual impact.
The artwork Le poète dans l’univers benefited from enhancement by special lighting.
Improved brightness and fresh paint complete this upgrade of Crémazie station to current tastes.
