Snapshot of Trim Station - February 21, 2021

Work progresses at Trim Station. The existing Park and Ride lot has been decreased in size to enable work to advance at the northern side. This area will feature the station entrance and local bus service stops. A pedestrian walkway will connect to the train station in the median of the highway.

Snapshot of Convent Glen Station - February 21, 2021

Work continues to progress at Convent Glen Station. The work occurring involves realigning the highway lanes, first towards the median, to enable the necessary work to be completed on the sides to allow for the highway to separate further. The lanes will then be realigned outwards to clear the median for station construction. You can also observe work involving underground infrastructure on the near side of the highway.

 Work at Jeanne d'Arc Station appears to consist of work on underground infrastructure as well as realigning highway ramps. There is also some work taking place in the median.

Snapshot of Montreal Station - February 21, 2021

Plenty of activity and work already completed at Montreal Station. Back in November, the highway realignment was completed to make use of the new overpasses, and the old original overpass was shortly after demolished. We can now see a big opening between the eastbound and westbound highway overpasses, which is where the future train station will be located. Work now continues in the highway median to prepare the land for station construction. Heading both eastbound and westbound from the station, there is work in the highway median, with earth clearing and trenching, for a sizable distance especially heading in the eastbound direction towards Jeanne d'Arc.
