AMT trains in and out of Lucien-L'Allier delayed after water main break

AMT commuter trains on Vaudreuil-Hudson, St-Jérôme and Candiac lines are struggling to get to the downtown Montreal train terminal due to a water main break.

An eight-inch pipe burst early Friday morning near Belgrave Avenue and De Maisonneuve Boulevard in NDG, causing ice to form near the tracks.

Train service affected:

- Trains on Vaudreuil-Hudson line will make it to Lucien-L'Allier, but at a reduced speed.

- St-Jérôme trains will stop at Parc and De La Concorde stations, where passengers can continue their journey on the Metro. 

- Candiac trains 86, 72 and 88 will make it through to Lucien-L'Allier at reduced speed. All other trains will stop at the Montreal West station. There, shuttle buses will escort passengers to Vendôme, where commuters can hop on the Metro.

However, the AMT says it doesn't have enough shuttle buses to accommodate all of its passengers.

"We were aware of the situation at 4:30 this morning and we were able to put an emergency plan on the road with those buses. We will try to get more buses as the day goes by if the situation needs more buses, but we [are doing] our best this morning to serve our customers," said Fanie St-Pierre of the AMT.
