The following answsers are provided by Michael Morgan, Director, Rail Construction Program.
- The station being located in the highway median, the current median is too narrow. What are the plans to address this to accommodate the station? Will the highway trench be widened and the lanes moves more to the sides to make for the necessary room?
The median in this area is wide enough to accommodate the Confederation Line east extension with only minor lane relocations in the immediate area of the Place d’Orléans Station. Lane relocations may also be required to accommodate construction access points, and utility relocation work that is required as part of the project.
- The current overpass for Champlain will remain, be refurbished or replaced?
The current overpass bridge will remain in place.
