The new Cote-Vertu underground garage will double the capacity of the train storage available at the end of the Orange line in Montreal, enabling for 20 trains to be stored at the site. A fan of tracks at the entrance of the garage will consist of three tunnels, with two tracks holding eight trains. A connecting track from the garage to the station will provide for space for an extra four trains to be parked if necessary. A maintenance pit will also be built as part of the garage project. The additional space for parking trains will allow for a 20 per cent increase in train frequency during peak periods. The project is expected to be completed by 2020.
