Three years after its opening to road and pedestrian traffic, the Samuel De Champlain Bridge welcomes a third type of traffic: the light metro, with Montreal's Réseau express métropolitain (REM – metropolitan express network).

On 27 July 2022, the Samuel De Champlain Bridge was opened to rail traffic for the first time. SYSTRA IBT participated in the construction of the Bridge in partnership with T.Y. Lin International and SNC Lavalin. The IBT and SYSTRA Canada teams are currently working on the certification of the bridge's tracks, in partnership with T.Y. Lin.

The Samuel De Champlain Bridge, the backbone of the REM South

Inaugurated in the summer of 2019, the Samuel De Champlain Bridge links the cities of Brossard and Montreal, replacing a previous structure that had become obsolete. It is above all a multimodal crossing and a feat of engineering with its three decks: two decks for road traffic (with eight lanes, including three for vehicles and one reserved for buses in each direction, as well as a multifunctional path for pedestrians and cyclists), and a central deck dedicated to the REM.

The Samuel De Champlain Bridge is one of the widest bridges in the world, with a total deck width of 50 meters. Its concrete and steel design has already won several awards, including the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI) International Transportation Structure Award.

Towards a modal shift by the automatic REM

 

On the same axis as the Bridge, and to propose a credible modal shift offer, the REM South will link Brossard (via the Rive-Sud station) to Central Station, crossing the St. Lawrence River. It will be operated with automatic driverless metro trains, which should be put into service on 1 December.
