Installation of two elevators to make Angrignon station universally accessible.
Duration of the work: October 2019 to fall 2022
Description of the work: Installation of elevators
Métro impacts: No
Bus impacts: No
Impact on customer trips
- Angrignon station remains open at all times.
- All station entrances remain open.
- The pedestrian path to Angrignon Park is closed to install a worksite trailer.
- Partitions are installed in various areas outside the station so we can expand the station to install the elevators and replace the curtain walls.
Worksite update (February 2022)
We are making good progress at Angrignon station. Many steps are now finished, including excavation, fill and concrete work.
The project also involved replacing the existing curtain walls—the large windows that make up the sides of the entrance building—to improve the station’s waterproofing. This work is also done.
Next up, elevator installation will begin in a few weeks. This will be done behind partitions and continue for several months. At the same time, we will also be conducting electromechanical work and replacing the floor finishes in certain parts of the station.
Impact on local residents
Beginning May 9, 2022, we will be undertaking work to concrete the sidewalks.
This work will be done between 6:00 p.m. and midnight. As a result, you may experience noise from the work site. In order to mitigate the noise, the truck back-up alarms will be set to a reduced tone. This work could continue for approximately 2 weeks, depending on the progress of the work.
There are no impact on local residents. Construction work that may generate noise will generally be restricted to a limited time between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

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) to improve the station’s watertightness.
A new work of art
A contest was launched in November 2018 to select an artist who will create a work of art that will be integrated into the station. The winner will be announced in 2019. The work of art will be the station’s first, since no work of art was installed when the station was built.

The station, once expanded for elevator installation, as seen from the bus loop.
January 2021. While excavating the soil to build one of the elevator shafts, we also had to install a beam to support the existing column until the new structure is built.
January 2021. We put up pile-supported retaining walls (called Berliner walls) to hold up the ground as we dig. In this photo, you can see the bottom of the dig site where the station is being expanded. This is where the elevators will be installed and their corresponding mechanical rooms built. We have now completed the excavation portion of the project.
January 2021. In addition to installing the elevators, we are also replacing the large wall-to-wall windows (called curtain walls) to make the station more waterproof. Because of this, partitions have been set up all around the station.
The Accessibility program is made possible thanks to the additional funding announced by the federal and provincial governments to speed up universal accessibility work with the goal of having 30 accessible métro stations by 2025.
