Hearing held by the Office de consultations publiques de Montréal

The objective is to rethink the territory and attract new businesses, while promoting sustainable development and better cohabitation with residential areas.

The MPA is directly involved in this file, as it has a road link project over Notre-Dame Street aimed to allow more direct truck access to the terminals and reduce traffic on the local road network.
