Looping Orange Line would cost $4.3B

A report is in on turning the orange line into a loop with 3 stations past Côte-Vertu (Poirier, Bois-Franc and Gouin) and two new stations in Laval before closing the circuit at Montmorency. Total estimate: $4.3 billion.

St-Laurent mayor Alan DeSousa is very keen and has chosen his moment, with doubts arising about the condition of the Mount Royal tunnel, to point out that, should anything go wrong with it, a metro stop at Bois‑Franc would provide an alternative for REM users to get downtown.
