GATINEAU, Que. – The Boulevard des Allumettieres has been officially opened in Gatineau.
Lawrence Cannon, Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities; Benoit Pelletier, Minister responsible for the Outaouais region and MNA for Chapleau; Roch Cholette, MNA for Hull; Charlotte L’Ecuyer, MNA for Pontiac, and Marc Bureau, Mayor of Gatineau, were recently present to mark the opening.
“This new road will be a key asset for the economy of the Outaouais region,” said Julie Boulet, Minister of Transport of Quebec.
“It was designed with respect for Gatineau Park, the environmental jewel through which it passes. It will reduce congestion on nearby roads, as well as greenhouse gases.”
The governments of Canada and Quebec have invested $96 million in the project.
The funding was shared equally by the two governments under the agreement to improve the road system in the Quebec portion of the National Capital Region (the Outaouais Roads Agreement).
