Part Of The STM's Green Line Is Shut Down Due To A Gas Leak Outside Atwater Station

A gas leak has led the STM to shut down a busy stretch of the green line on Tuesday. Service is expected to resume at 2 p.m. between Angrignon and Berri-UQAM stations.

An STM spokesperson tells MTL Blog that the gas leak was caused by an issue related to a construction site outside the STM.

Emergency responders are currently on-site and evaluating the situation.

"We are working closely with Sécurités incendies de Montréal and the other competent authorities to restore the situation as quickly as possible, but the safety of our installations and the public is paramount," he said.

Shuttle bus service for those affected by the shutdown has been set up between Angrignon and Berri-UQAM. 

With service expected to resume at 2 p.m., those who are planning to take the green line should plan ahead and figure out another way to get to their destination. 

You can also take the orange line to get downtown if that's an option for you. 

As a reminder, wearing a face mask is mandatory in all public transport in Montreal.
