CDPQ Infra initially refused a subway route that was to pass under downtown Montreal. A terrible disaster, the collapse of downtown buildingsCDPQ Infra predicted, Mr. Beaudet recalled.

But she was wrong, the plague of Mr. Peabody. This is the mentality of CDPQ Infra on this project, and [cela montre] Lack of respect for residents, experts and people who ask questions, Confirms.

However, the proposed tunnel under the city center will make it possible to build a rear station.

Fantastic needs

However, he acknowledges that the need for public transportation in eastern Montreal is enormous, but that’s not happening The proportion of people from the east who work in the city center is relatively small. In this context, mobility needs Not the ones offered by REM. The city planner was surprised that CDPQ Infra has started Through infrastructure development, the [qu’ensuite elle] Try to match the needs from public transportation.
