Notice to residents
Montreal, October 22, 2003 The Société de transport de Montréal (STM) is currently carrying out work inside sections of its métro tunnels, effectively laying the groundwork for the installation of new telecommunications technology.
Works began in mid-September and will continue till the end of 2004, from Monday to Friday, between midnight and 4:30 a.m. Noise could be generated, mainly next to the ventilation units along the affected tunnel sections, which extend from Pr�fontaine to Atwater along the Green line, from Henri-Bourassa to Lucien-L’Allier along the Orange line, and from Berri-UQAM to Longueuil–Universit�-de-Sherbrooke along the Yellow line.
These works are necessary to ensure the availability, reliability and safety of métro equipment, and are required in order to meet with safety standards set out for métro operations.
The STM regrets any inconvenience that may result from these works and wishes to thank residents for their understanding.
