ACS to build automatic passenger transport system in Montreal’s metropolitan area

(13/03/2018) 

 ACS has a 24% share of a contract that includes SNC Lavalin, Aecon, Pomerleau and EBC and involves the design and construction of a new automatic underground network interconnected with the existing one, with bus networks and commuter trains.

The new network will connect the city with the outlying districts of Rive Sud, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue and Deux Montagnes, as well as the Pierre Trudeau International Airport. The project includes railway infrastructures, track installation, traction systems, catenary and the construction of bus terminals and dissuasive car parks.

The total length of the new network is 67 kilometres and its route runs through a tunnel (5 km), on an elevated structure (18 km) and at ground level (44 km). The new network will have 25 stations of which thirteen will be at ground level, eight of them elevated and three underground. The project also includes the remodelling of the Central Station to accommodate the new platforms.
