A huge project with a major impact

We are currently involved in a huge project that is sure to improve the daily lives of thousands of Montrealers: the construction of the future Réseau Express Métropolitain (REM) in Montreal.

The project, with a total value of $6.3 billion (including $5 billion for the consortium), aims to build a vast light rail transit system throughout Montreal.

A total of 26 stations will be built by the NouveLR consortium which also includes SNC-Lavalin Grands Projets Inc, Dragados Canada Inc, Aecon Quebec Group Ltd and EBC Inc. As a member, Pomerleau is responsible for the infrastructure engineering, procurement and construction aspects of the project.

Here are some project highlights:

  • The 26 stations will be spread over 67 km—50 km will be in urban areas.
  • Major relocations and burials of overhead lines, in conflict with the route, will be carried out.
  • The design of the structure will be 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 will be rerouted.
  • The work will be completed in October 2024.
