VIA Rail Canada would like to inform residents near its Montréal Maintenance Centre that construction and upgrades will be conducted in your community starting in Spring 2023, with a targeted completion date of 2026.
VIA Rail has received the first of 32 train sets of its new modern fleet that will serve the Québec City-Windsor corridor. Two contracts have been awarded to two Canadian companies for the modernization of its Toronto and Montréal maintenance centres. It is an important pillar of the Corridor Fleet Replacement Program, in order to service and maintain VIA Rail’s 32 new trains as well as continue to maintain the existing fleet.
Modernization of VIA Rail’s Montréal Maintenance Centre
The project to modernize the maintenance centres in Montréal and Toronto is part of the Fleet Replacement Program, for which funds were allocated in the Federal government’s 2018 budget. As part of the $1.5B overall budget for the New Fleet are being invested in the modernization of VIA Rail’s maintenance centres, the implementation and integration of various IT systems as well as the transformation of maintenance processes.
The constructor is designing and will construct all site and building improvements to accommodate the service, inspection, and maintenance activities for the New Trainsets and remaining Legacy Fleet.
