Impact on local residents

The preparatory worksite for the construction of the future Lacordaire station was put on hiatus in mid-December 2021. Due to winter weather, we had to install some provisional roadwork. The arrival of spring allowed us to finalize the sidewalks and streets in the area. This work is now completed. 

We will provide you with the construction schedule for the future Lacordaire station by the end of 2022.

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!
