Road and Maintenance Works


REM Preparatory Work

Date : Beginning in fall 2018
Heures : From 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., 7 days a week, depending on work progress
Où : Between Jean-Yves Street and Morgan Avenue
Information :

Nature of the work:

The structure of the REM on the West Island will be elevated, from the Des Sources station to the Saint-Anne-de-Bellevue station. For work on the elevated portion of the route, pillars will need to be installed along the former Doney railway spur, as well as along Highway 40 at Fairview Pointe-Claire.

Anticipated impacts and mitigation measures:

Just as for any construction site, work will have an impact on residents in the vicinity; they will be affected by noise, vibrations, dust, frequent use of trucks and traffic hindrances. Mitigation measures will be implemented to minimize the impacts. The REM project office and NouvLR consortium’s goal is to prevent or minimize impact on surrounding residents as much as possible and ensure safety by implementing all appropriate measures.

In Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue and the West Island, work will be carried out according to the following schedule**:

Planned schedule Work

Works at the lock of Parks Canada

Parks Canada wishes to inform the public that major rehabilitation work is being carried out on the marine structures of the Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue Canal. The next phase of the work will be carried out on the lock structures. 

From the end of October 2018 to the beginning of May 2019, work including, in particular, the repair of beams (replacement of wooden parts, painting, sawing of metal parts and welding), mechanical work on hydraulic units, the repair of the lock floor, the sidewalk, and the repair of guardrails are planned. 

Traffic should not be affected by the work.
While the work will take place outside the navigation season, the safety of the public and contractors on-site is a priority for Parks Canada. During construction, Parks Canada asks the public to exercise caution and comply with construction zones and signage.

Parks Canada makes every effort to minimize disruptions caused by infrastructure projects at the Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue Canal. When this work has an impact on users, Parks Canada communicates work information in a variety of ways, including the @QuebecCanals social media account (Twitter) and online at
