Quebec to Build Underground Train Garage


Montreal Quebec - Transport planners have announced that an underground train garage is to be built in Montreal to help increase the number of services in line with expected demand.
 
The nearly $440 million garage will help metro operator Societe de transport de Montreal (STM) add more trains during rush hour periods, especially on the Orange line, which is the most heavily-used.
 
STM said the service increase could be by as much as a 25 percent on the line.
 
In addition, the new facility, which is to be built at Cote-Vertu station, will house ten extra trains, allow STM to better maintain its rolling stock, and also look at replacing first-generation metro cars.
 
The Government of Quebec is to contribute $330 million and STM the remaining $110 million.
 
The Cote-Vertu station will be temporarily closed in summer 2018 for 11 weeks in preparation for the train garage.
 
The announcement was made on 25 Aug 2017.
