MONT-ROYAL – The demolition of the bridge at Cornwall, which straddles the railroad tracks in the town of Mont-Royal, have been carried out on the 13 June last.
Built in 1918, the bridge Cornwall will be fully refurbished in the framework of the work of installation of the Network express metropolitan (REM).
Three mechanical shovels are busy, and the bridge as well as on the rails in order to demolish the entire structure, which was already in an advanced state of degradation.
This work marked a first step in the complete transformation of the train line, Two-Mountains, light rail, automated.
The progressive commissioning of this section of REM is scheduled for 2022 and 2023. It will replace the train line that connects the North Shore to downtown Montreal.
