AMT plans work on Vaudreuil-Hudson line

Work will be done principally on summer weekends

By Kevin Woodhouse

Train commuters on the Vaudreuil-Hudson line will have their regular services disrupted throughout the summer as the AMT will be working on the tracks during weekends.

“The work will be starting in a few days and we wanted to sensitize the public as early as possible,” said AMT spokesperson Claudia Martin. Improvements to widen the tracks as well as regular maintenance will be taking place outside of morning and afternoon rush hours but the work will take a more serious tone with expected disruptions throughout five or six weekends this summer.

During Canada Day Weekend starting on Saturday, June 28, there will be a complete stoppage in train service with buses implemented as alternate transportation. “There will be no service at all during those days and on June 30, there will be a complete closure with no bus service either,” said Martin.

“We chose to start the work after classes were finished and we chose weekends for the least amount of disruption as possible,” Martin told The Suburban.
Other work to be done during the weekend blitzes will be modernizing the signaling system as well as creating “liaison lines so that it will be easier for our trains to pass,” said Martin.

Martin also noted that during the work, certain portions of the rail system will have reduced speed limits for worker safety and “some sectors can expect minor delays.”

AMT will be distributing info pamphlets to users and riders can always subscribe to the AMT’s various Twitter feeds. For further information about the upcoming work on the Vaudreuil-Hudson line, consult the AMT website.
