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 2030.
Please note that the station name is tentative.
- In 2024, excavation work will start.
Jean-Talon Street boasts new colours
Thanks to municipal funding, the Société de développement commercial de la rue Jean-Talon Est joined forces with MU to beautify and enliven the street by creating a public artwork on a building owned by the STM.

Dan Buller’s artistic approach
The artist wanted to pay tribute to Saint-Léonard’s Italian heritage. Through the lens of Italian design movements, he reworked the Saint-Léonard and City of Montréal logos and the Montréal métro pictogram. He also drew inspiration from the 1976 Montréal Olympics graphics, which were characterized by bold compositions, large, flat shapes and bright colours.
Enhancing neighbourhoods near the extension
The Blue line extension team is happy to support this project by installing the artwork on a building owned by the STM. Other Blue line extension initiatives aimed at enhancing the neighbourhoods where stations will be built include the Terrasse de Léon and the Prochaine station square, which are located where the future Lacordaire métro station will be.

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:
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 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.
