MONTREAL, May 27, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Société de transport de
Montréal (STM) wishes to inform customers that it will be carrying out
work at Square-Victoria station and, as a result, the Belmont entrance,
located at 605 Belmont, will be closed from June 3 to September 8.
This will enable the STM to repair sections of the structural slab and
concrete sidewalk in front of the entrance doorway, modernize the wall
finishes, recondition the granite staircases, and replace some sections
of the floor covering. In addition, work on the platforms, mainly
involving the wall finishes and staircases, will continue until October
The station will still be accessible at all times via the Viger
entrance. However, this may require some passengers to leave the
building to reach their offices. STM personnel will be on hand for the
first two days to provide assistance, and signs will be posted for the
duration of the work. No bus stops will be moved.
Note that Square-Victoria station was opened in 1967 and is used by some
five million passengers annually.
This work is part of the Réno-Infrastructures program, jointly financed
by Transports Québec and the STM.
