The Eastern Junction is the crossing of the railway tracks on the Deux-Montagnes and those of the Saint-Laurent subdivision, on which run the Canadian National (CN) freight trains.
Improve punctuality and add departures
For several years, increased crossing conflicts caused delays on the Deux-Montagnes line, the busiest on the AMT network.
To improve the flow of traffic and commuter train punctuality, and to enable the AMT to add new departures, an overpass was constructed. Major work was carried out from 2009 to 2013:
The overpass is open!
In October 2013, the new overpass and the new permanent configuration of the Deux-Montagnes track were opened.
The layout of the Gohier curve, which allows trains of the Mascouche line to use the tracks of the Deux-Montagnes line to Central Station, was completed in November 2014.
