MONTREAL, Oct. 2, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Société de transport de
Montréal (STM) wishes to inform customers that the Viger entrance of
the Square-Victoria métro station, located at 601 Viger Avenue West,
will be closed from October 7 to December 15 for repairs.
This will enable the STM to repair the structural slab and the concrete
sidewalk in front of the entrance doorway, replace the butterfly doors
and the windows, upgrade the flooring, replace the lighting, and carry
out some electrical and mechanical work.
Work on the platforms - involving mainly the wall finishes and stairways
- is on-going and will be finished by late November.
The station will remain accessible at all times via the Saint-Antoine
entrance, although some passengers may have to leave the building to
reach their offices. STM personnel will be on hand for the first two
days to guide customers, and signs will be posted for the duration of
the work. No bus stops will be moved. In addition, the Belmont
entrance, which was also closed for repairs, will re-open on October 7.
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.
