Lucien-L’Allier Station Set for Major Renovation Work Starting April 1, 2024




Montreal's Lucien-L’Allier station, a vital hub for commuters in the city, is gearing up for a significant transformation. Effective April 1, 2024, the station will temporarily close its doors to undergo extensive repair and renovation work. This announcement has left many commuters and residents intrigued about the changes to come.


Lucien-L’Allier station holds a crucial position as the host and terminal for three major train lines: 11-Vaudreuil/Hudson, 12-Saint-Jérôme, and 14-Candiac. As the busiest train station on the exo network, it serves as a critical transportation link for countless individuals commuting to and from various parts of the Greater Montreal Area.


The upcoming renovation project aims to address several key issues and enhance the overall functionality and appearance of the station. Here's what commuters can expect from the Lucien-L’Allier station makeover:


  1. Reconstruction of Platforms: One of the primary objectives of the renovation is to rebuild the station's four platforms. Over time, these platforms have reached the end of their useful life and require comprehensive reconstruction to ensure safety and efficiency for passengers.

  2. Infrastructure Upgrades: The renovation project will also focus on bringing the station's systems and infrastructures up to modern standards. This includes improvements to electrical, mechanical, and technological components to enhance reliability and performance.

  3. Canopy Installation: To enhance passenger comfort, a new canopy will be added to the station. This addition aims to provide shelter from inclement weather conditions and create a more pleasant waiting environment for commuters.

  4. Emergency Exits: Two new emergency exits will be constructed, providing additional safety measures for passengers. These exits, located on Argyle and De la Montagne streets, will improve accessibility and evacuation procedures in case of emergencies.

  5. Line 6 Extension: As part of the renovation project, Line 6 will be extended to improve traffic flow and flexibility at the station. This extension is expected to streamline operations and accommodate the growing number of commuters passing through Lucien-L’Allier.


While the temporary closure of Lucien-L’Allier station may pose some inconvenience to commuters during the renovation period, the anticipated improvements promise to enhance the overall commuter experience and ensure the long-term sustainability of this vital transportation hub.


Stay tuned for further updates on the Lucien-L’Allier station renovation project as it progresses towards completion. In the meantime, commuters are advised to plan their travel arrangements accordingly and make use of alternative transportation options during the temporary closure.
