Description of the work: Installation of elevators
Impact on métro service: no
Impact on bus service: yes (in spring 2020)
Impacts on customer trips
- Angrignon station will remain open at all times.
- Some bus stops in the terminus will be relocated, starting in spring 2020. The map of relocated bus stops will be available on this page.
- The bike racks have been moved near the entrance to Parc Angrignon.
Partitions will be installed in various areas outside the station so we can expand the station to install the elevators and replace the curtain walls.
All station entrances will remain open.
Impacts on local residents
There will be no impact on the residents of the area. Construction work that may generate noise will generally be restricted to a limited time between 7am and 7pm.

Integrating elevators into a métro station involves a number of steps. Given Angrignon station’s architecture, we will have to expand the station at specific locations to install the elevators under the glass domes. We will also replace all the station’s exterior glass walls (curtain walls) improve the station’s watertightness.
A new work of art
A contest was launched in November 2018 to select an artist who will integrate a work of art into the station. The winner will be announced in 2019. This work of art will be the station’s first, since no work of art was installed when the station was built.

The Accessibility program is made possible thanks to the additional funding announced by the federal and provincial governments to speed up universal access work and make the 41 métro stations accessible by 2025.
