Roxboro/Sunnybrooke area 4

January 6, 2020: Closure of the Mont-Royal tunnel and disruption in service of the Deux-Montagnes line between the Bois-Franc station and the Central Station

The REM work will be performed in two phases in Montréal West Island: in January 6, 2020, the closure of the Mont-Royal tunnel will cause a disruption in service between the Bois-Franc station and the Central Station; in mid-2021, the Deux-Montagnes line will be completely closed.

Mitigation measures in place

  • Starting January 2020: improvement of the bus service to the Côte-Vertu metro station
  • Preferential measures for buses (bus priority signals, passing lane to avoid queues, reserved lanes)
  • Increased use of reserved lanes to ease traffic
