Lighting improvements in stations


To increase the comfort and safety of our users, we will begin lighting improvement work in several métro stations in 2018.

Only three steps for safe, optimal, subtle and efficient lighting:

  • Some fixtures are at the end of their service life
  • Some fixtures provide insufficient lighting
  • Maintenance has become almost impossible, especially at heights and above the escalators

In 2018, the lighting team will improve the lighting in the following stations:

  • Côte-des-Neiges
  • De Castelnau
  • Édouard-Montpetit
  • Fabre
  • Joliette
  • Henri-Bourassa
  • Lighting improvement work will lead to safe, optimal, subtle and efficient lighting
  • Safer passenger travel thanks to a well-lit environment for everyone
  • Easier for the maintenance team to safely and efficiently carry out work on lighting fixtures
  • Increased passenger comfort

Did you know?

  • Each platform has more than 150 lighting fixtures.
  • Relamping involves replacing old mercury vapor lighting fixtures with metal halide lamps, florescent tubes or LEDs. This work is carried out every three years. The lamps and tubes provide lighting similar to natural light and are easily replaceable.
  • Maintenance costs can be reduced since metal halide lamps installed at heights can be replaced using a pole instead of elaborate scaffolding.

This work is made possible through funding from the ministère des Transports du Québec.
