MONTREAL, Feb. 15, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Société de transport de Montréal
(STM) wishes to inform customers that repair work carried out at McGill
métro station will require the Union Sud entrance building to be closed
from February 18 to May 21 inclusively.
Transit users can still access the station through the next nearest
entrance, Union Nord, located at 2021 Union Avenue. The four other
entrance buildings will also remain open. No bus stops will be
relocated as part of the project.
Estimated at $886 000, the renovations work planned during that period
will consist mainly in replacing the travertine tiles lining the
entrance building walls. Those travertine tiles are in fact being
repurposed, as they were removed from the walls along the train
platform and on the mezzanine level during earlier phases of work. An
anti-graffiti film will also be applied on the wall to protect its
finish. Furthermore, the ' butterfly-type' pivoting doors will be
replaced, a new concrete floor slab will be poured, the suspended
ceiling will be removed and, lastly, the lighting will be upgraded.
These renovations are being carried out as part of Phase I of the
Réno-Infrastructures program, in which Transport Québec and STM are
STM reminds the public that, as the system's second busiest station with
nearly 12 million passengers in 2011, McGill metro station has, since
March 2012, been undergoing repair work totalling $3.7 M that will be
completed by May.
