Champ-de-Mars

Work underway at Champ-de-Mars station

Project summary

Champ-de-Mars station’s waterproofing membrane has been completely refurbished and the worksite fencing has been removed.

The panels protecting the huge stained-glass curtain walls have been removed, and the station is glowing once again. You will see, however, that the structure supporting the panels is still in place. It will stay there to protect the work of art until redevelopment of Place des Montréalaises is complete.

While restoring the exterior membrane, we took advantage of the excavation to carry out work above the tracks in the station. Some of this work will continue during the night for a few more weeks, but there will be no inconvenience for métro users.


Duration of the work: From May 18 to December 2020

Champ-de-Mars station is known for its impressive work of art. Visible from both inside and outside the station, these huge stained-glass windows are a real eye-catcher for transit users.

The panels protecting the huge stained-glass curtain walls have been removed, and the station is glowing once again. You will see, however, that the structure supporting the panels is still in place. It will stay there to protect the work of art until redevelopment of Place des Montréalaises is complete.

The waterproofing membrane protects the station from water infiltrations. It covers the station’s underground roof and is therefore located underground. Champ-de-Mars station’s waterproofing membrane dates back to the station’s initial construction and has reached the end of its useful life.
