MONTREAL, Que. — Public hearings have begun into the Quebec government’s proposed $263 million expressway that is slated to cut through the east end of Montreal.
Residents in the Hockelaga-Maisonneuve, Centre South and Mercier districts are divided on whether the expressway should proceed.
“Many people are for this project, but some are not, and that is the debate that will take place the rest of this week,” says Paul Leguerrier, president of the Collectif en AmEnagement Urbain Hockelaga-Maisonneuve.
If the project goes ahead as planned, it is hoped construction will begin in 2002-2003, and is slated for completion in 2006.
Public consultations will continue for the rest of the week.
