Tenders Called for Montréal’s Blue Line Metro Extension Project

The Société de transport de Montréal (STM) has launched a call for tenders as part of the Blue line metro extension project between Saint-Michel and Anjou in Montréal, Quebec.

This large-scale project will create 5 new accessible metro stations and approximately 6 kilometres of tunnel. It will also include 2 bus terminals and an underground pedestrian tunnel to connect to the Pie-IX bus rapid transit (BRT) service.

STM is now seeking bidders for the project’s largest contract, which covers several key responsibilities:

  • The design, supply and operation of the tunnel boring machine (TBM)
  • Construction of the tunnel by TBM between Pie-IX and Anjou West stations
  • Construction of the pedestrian tunnel by conventional method between Pie-IX and the rear station of the current blue line
  • The excavation of the Pie-IX main entrance, as well as Viau and Lacordaire stations
Geneviève Guilbault, Deputy Premier and Minister of Transport and Sustainable Mobility said:

“The extension of the blue line is a priority project for the revitalisation of Montreal East and for metropolitan mobility. Finally, the project is coming to fruition, with the construction of the new tunnel which will connect five new stations to the metro network by 2029! Our government is making every effort to deliver this long-awaited project. We cannot repeat it enough: in the era of climate challenges, the development of public transport networks is at the heart of solutions to support sustainable mobility.”
