Work completed at Jean-Talon station

An initial part of Jean-Talon station’s waterproofing membrane is now completely refurbished.

This major project was carried out in two phases: the complete closure of Jean-Talon between Saint-Denis and De Saint-Vallier, and then the closure of De Saint-Vallier between Jean-Talon and Bélanger.

The waterproofing membrane under both streets was replaced and required excavating the soil covering it. We excavated to a depth of one to seven metres in various locations, just above Jean-Talon station’s pedestrian tunnels, which pass under the street.

As part of this project—which precedes major renovations inside the station—we also reinforced a foundation wall above the Orange line.

There have been minor obstructions inside the station. The fencing, located at the head of the Côte-Vertu platform and at the end of the Montmorency platform, is allowing us to proceed with the reinforcement of the foundation wall.

In April 2018, we began work to install an elevator to make the Blue line accessible. The elevator serves both of the superimposed Blue line platforms and was commissioned at the beginning of November 2019.The station is already equipped with three elevators and the Orange line is universally accessible.

A truly impressive sight!
