“We are very pleased to have won this important professional services mandate for the STM. AECOM is once again associated with the development of the Montréal metro network, after having participated in the last extension project of the Orange line in Laval”, said Yvan Côté, Vice President, Transportation, Canada East.

The project to extend the Blue Line includes six kilometers of tunnel from the Saint-Michel station to the Anjou station, namely five stations, an underground garage, service centers and auxiliary structures, bus terminals and park-and-ride facilities and fixed equipment (track, systems related to traction power, train controls and telecommunications as well as motorized facilities such as elevators, escalators, fans and pumps).

The mandate of GPLB for the STM, which will be undertaken as part of an integrated project office with the client, includes updating the preliminary project, defining the reference project, providing complimentary engineering services based on the selected delivery mode as well as performing procurement, construction monitoring and project management.
