Beaubien Metro station reopens Monday after summer repairs
One of Montreal's first Metro stations gets a multi-million-dollar facelift
Good news, Rosemont–La-Petite-Patrie dwellers — Beaubien Metro station is reopening after four long months of work.
The station got a $4.3-million facelift over the summer, including a new ventilation shaft, new stairs, new lighting and repairs to the floors and walls on the train platforms.
Opened in 1966, the STM says Beaubien Metro station sees 3.6 million passengers a year.
The station will be open while other work — ventilation, electrical work and repairs to the building's exterior — is ongoing. The renovation project is expected to wrap up in January 2016.
In late 2014, the STM announced a new capital expenditures program for 2015-2017 in which it projects spending $2.3 billion on 46 different projects, including the purchase of the new AZUR Metro cars and the completion of renovation work at Berri-UQAM.
