A Huge Project with a Major Impact

As a member of the NouvLR consortium, which includes SNC-Lavalin Inc., Dragados Canada Inc., Aecon Quebec Group Ltd and EBC., we are building the Réseau Express Métropolitain (REM) in Montreal. The REM is the largest public transit infrastructure project in Quebec since the Montreal metro was inaugurated in 1966.

The vast light rail transit system will have a total of 26 stations in the city. We are responsible for the infrastructure engineering, procurement and construction aspects of the project.

The rail system is sure to improve the daily lives of thousands of Montrealers and tourists alike by providing an efficient and sustainable method of transportation for riders.

Here are some project highlights:

  • The 26 stations will spread over 67 km and are in urban areas.
  • Major relocations and burials of overhead lines, in conflict with the route, are being carried out.
  • The design of the structure was adapted to prevent any conflicts.
  • Use of Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) mass timber panels for the roofs of above ground stations.
  • The path of nearby municipal sewers and aqueducts were rerouted.
