Snapshot of the Confederation Line Eastern Extension - February 21, 2021

maxresdefault

A drive down regional road 174 between Blair and Trim Roads shows plenty of progress and change occurring in the highway median to accommodate the future O-Train Stations. 

In this video, you will see the rail flyover, Montreal, Jeanne d'Arc, Convent Glen, Place d'Orleans and Trim Stations. 

The video first plays in the eastbound direction. The return trip to Blair going westbound begins at 02:30 in the video. 

View the recent Eastern Snapshot Updates below

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 Place d'Orleans Station - February 21, 2021

Work currently at Place d'Orleans Station continues to be widening the highway trench, and realigning the highway lanes to clear space in the median for the future train station.

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.

Snapshot of Jeanne d'Arc Station - February 21, 2021

 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.

This snapshot update is the second in the series for Stage 2 LRT.

Over the course of the next several years, the O-Train Line 1 : Confederation Line will be extended eastward from Blair to Place d'Orleans and beyond to Trim. While construction at this station has not begun, this entry is a look at the present station and location, as well as a discussion of what is to come and where everything will be once construction is completed.

Looking down from the Orleans Blvd overpass at regional road 174 heading westbound. Jeanne d'Arc Station is seen in the distance.
The future Orléans Blvd. Station will be located in the median of the highway. It will be a centre platform station with the tracks running at both sides near the roadway.
Entrances to the station will be located in the middle of the overpass on both sides.
It is my opinion that the overpass will be either refurbished or replaced as part of the station construction.

Orléans Blvd (2024)
