Road obstruction on Dunkirk Road

When: Until the end of May 2019, weekdays and weekends between 7:00 and 19:00
Where: Dunkirk Road between Graham Boulevard and Hudson Avenue

Nature of the work

In order to optimize the sequence of work that can now be performed on weekdays, NouvLR will set up a new logistics zone near the Mont-Royal station. This will require a segment of Dunkirk Road to be closed between Graham Boulevard and Hudson Avenue. The segment will be closed every day (weekdays and weekends) between 7:00 and 19:00 until the end of May 2019.

Access to the Hudson alley and Pizzaiolle parking lot will be maintained.

Impacts and mitigation measures

  • Traffic obstruction between 7:00 and 19:00.
  • Equipment, including a power shovel, will be installed in the logistics zone to move materials between the logistics zone and the site.
  • Access to the Hudson alley will be maintained at all times. Between 7:00 and 19:00, signallers will direct traffic to ensure safety for alley users.
  • Pedestrians will be able to continue using the sidewalk.
  • Access to Pizzaiolle parking lot will be maintained.
  • Dunkirk Road will be open to traffic between 7:00 and 19:00.
  • This work will generate noise and dust. Mitigation measures will be implemented as needed to mitigate impacts at the source (acoustic enclosures, low-noise equipment, white noise vehicles). To ensure that the project’s noise and air quality criteria are met, monitoring by environmental experts will take place throughout the work.
  • Some of the work will require truck traffic in the neighbourhood; long-term traffic pattern changes are also in place to minimize construction traffic and secure the construction zones. Signallers located around the perimeter of the construction site will ensure pedestrian safety.

Preparatory work to build temporary shared platform

When: Starting April 6, 2019, on weekends between 7:00 and 19:00
Where: Between the Canora and Mont-Royal stations

Nature of the work

Preparatory work will be done during the month of April so that a temporary shared platform can be built between the Canora and Mont-Royal stations (south of Laird Boulevard). The temporary platform will be located halfway between the current platforms, allowing for exo service after the railway tracks are changed as scheduled following the long weekend of May 18-20, 2019.

The temporary work will be done in sequence, mainly on weekends, but the schedule may vary according to weather conditions and work progress.

  • Cutting down a few trees so that an access ramp and two temporary stairways can be installed up to the platform.
  • Building an access ramp to allow shared platform maintenance and access for emergency services.
  • Building two stairways at the ends of the platform to allow access to the single platform.
  • Installing temporary ticketing systems so that train users can buy tickets more easily.
  • Delivering blocks to the shared platform. Concrete blocks for the platform will be built at another site and then delivered and stored next to the tracks currently not being used. The platform will be assembled during the three days of the long weekend starting May 18. The work will include paving the platform and installing urban furniture and shelters.

Impacts and mitigation measures

  • This work will generate noise and dust. Mitigation measures will be implemented as needed to mitigate impacts at the source (acoustic enclosures, low-noise equipment, white noise vehicles). To ensure that the project’s noise and air quality criteria are met, monitoring by environmental experts will take place throughout the work.
  • Some of the work will require truck traffic in the neighbourhood; long-term traffic pattern changes are also in place to minimize construction traffic and secure the construction zones. Signallers located around the perimeter of the construction site will ensure pedestrian safety.

Despite work being scheduled to take place mainly on weekends from 7:00 to 19:00, extra work before and after these hours may be necessary to mobilize and demobilize equipment required for the work and to clean up the site, to ensure that morning train service is restored on schedule.
