The Montreal Port Authority (MPA) is gratified by the $15,449,000 in financial support awarded by the Government of Quebec for the construction and repair of marine infrastructures. The announcement was made on June 23 at a press conference at the Port of Montreal’s Grand Quay by Chantal Rouleau, Minister for Transport and Minister Responsible for the Metropolis and the Montréal Region.
This amount will be used to carry out three projects geared to support Quebec’s economic recovery: the repair of Berth 28 in the Port of Montreal, the repair and widening of the Pie-IX railway bridge, and continuation of the construction work on the overpass spanning Notre-Dame Street.
These projects will go a long way to support intermodality by maximizing links with land transportation in an eco-responsible framework, to improve the flow of road traffic in the Port and to reduce truck traffic on the local road network.
