The REM de l'Est announcement last December marked the beginning of the detailed planning phase for the project, creating an opportunity to refine and improve the project. We will say it again: REM de l'Est is a work in progress.
CDPQ Infra and the REM project office went over the work completed in 2020 and presented the revised schedule that takes into account the impact of COVID-19 and of two major issues identified in the Mont-Royal tunnel as part of its modernization.
CDPQ Infra announced today the conclusion of a work optimization agreement with NouvLR, the consortium building the REM. This agreement reinforces the delivery schedule for the overall project while adjusting certain aspects of the work, which continues to move forward at a sustained pace.
