These organizations are collaborating on the project’s phasing strategy so that all the work lines up to keep local travel running smoothly and ensure good management of their investments. During the excavation, the City of Montréal and other stakeholders will take the opportunity to upgrade underground infrastructure.

The preparatory 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 include water pipes, sewers, and underground conduits and cabling.

We are finalizing the overall project schedule based on multiple factors. We will keep you informed as the project progresses and let you know when the work will begin.

Projects like the Viau area preparatory work need to be planned months in advance. Together, our experienced technicians, engineers and project managers pool their knowledge of a variety of disciplines, including civil engineering, structure, electricity, building mechanics, geotechnics, traffic maintenance and sustainable development.

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!
