Montreal STM Papineau Station Shut Down Indefinitely

There is no update on how long the station will be closed for.
Montreal STM Papineau Station Shut Down Indefinitely

UPDATE: Papineau station has reopened.

Montreal's STM Green line has had a rough week this week. On May 17, the entirety of the blue line was shut down for over 8 hours. That same week service on the green line was interrupted twice. The first closure was due to water infiltration, while the second closure was shut down due to the presence of smoke.

The STM has just announced that they have currently closed the Papineau metro station. They state that they are doing temporary construction work which has closed the station. This closure was unplanned.

Earlier on Friday, the STM published the Tweet below:

The Tweet reads "Temporary works at the mezzanine level have led to the closure of Papineau metro station. The 815 shuttle is travelling between the stations Berri-UQAM and Frontenac. Refer to the neighbourhood map."

It is worth noting that the Beaudry metro station, which is the station before Papineau, has also been closed for several months. This means that the the green line is currently closed between Berri-UQAM and Frontenac: a long stretch.

The 815 shuttle has been travelling between Beaudry and Berri-UQAM since the closure of Beaudry in October. It has temporarily been extended to go to Papineau.

The STM gives no reason for why this construction led to an unplanned station closure. As of right now, there is also no news on when the station will be reopening. We will update this article as more information becomes available.

The STM has stated that they are working on a "prompt reopening."

Construction at the Papineau metro station has led to a temporary closure of the station. The STM cites construction work at the mezzanine level for this closure, which was unplanned. It is unclear when the station will reopen.
