Construction site summary
As part of the Blue line extension project, this worksite involves building a new accessible métro station with one entrance building.The entire extension is expected to be commissioned in 2029.
Please note that the station name is tentative.
- Mid February 2023, the former restaurant and gas station (convenience store and car wash) buildings located on Lacordaire Boulevard, between Jean-Talon and du Mans, will be demolished to secure the site and prepare it for the excavation phase.

Information sessions, talks, activities, good neighbour committees: our team wants to meet you!
The work involved relocating urban public utilities, giving us free rein to begin the massive excavation that will be needed to build the new métro station. The utilities that needed to be relocated included water pipes, sewers and underground conduits and cabling.
Before the preparatory work, the project team prepared informative video clips. Watch these clips to learn more about the project:
Clip 1: Description of the work (in French) on YouTube
Clip 2: Mitigation measures (in French) on YouTube
Clip 3: Closures and mobility (in French) on YouTube
We will keep you informed as the project progresses and let you know when construction will begin.
Yes. When we conduct the mass excavation to build the new métro station entrance building, the land will be decontaminated in compliance with current environmental standards.
Made up of citizens interested in representing their community, the purpose of the committee is to:
- Promote dialogue between citizens and the STM during the work
- Share information regarding the progress of the work and next steps with citizens
- Listen to the concerns of citizens during the work and find solutions together
Projects like the preparatory work in the Lacordaire area need to be planned months in advance. Together, our experienced technicians, engineers and project managers employ their knowledge of a variety of disciplines: civil engineering, structure, electricity, building mechanics, geotechnics, traffic maintenance and sustainable development, to name just a few.
Our design, project management and follow-up teams are putting their expertise to good use in the east end of the city, and all this is just the beginning!

The project in images
2022-2022 : Work at this intersection involved relocating urban public utilities, giving us free rein to begin the massive excavation that will be needed to build the new métro station.
At the intersection, a secondary valve chamber is being installed to reconnect the water main.
We are digging about six metres into the ground to move the utilities, which include water pipes, sewers and underground conduits and cabling.
The blue line extension project follows in the wake of the Déclaration du gouvernement du Québec et de la Ville de Montréal to revitalize Montréal East. Many projects are underway to give a new impetus to this sector. Increased mobility, economic development, and improved living environments are at the heart of this ambitious project.
