Quebec 2050: Population increase and transport problems

Of the seven sites of the exercise of reflection Quebec 2050 brought together decision makers of regional development, two have received attention for their potential impacts on the western sector of the Quebec region.

A sustainable mobility plan for the SRB system is to ease traffic around buildings slated to be built on boul. Laurier Boulevard in the coming years.

The “Transport” section extensively relied on measures that encourage the use of active modes of transportation and public transit.

With the emergence of large-scale projects, such as Le Phare mega complex, improving the transit service appears to be essential.

Indeed, traffic congestion in the region is likely to be more acute in the next 35 years, while we anticipate that the population will increase to 1 million.

As for “Large equipment”, several economic actors consider necessary to develop an industrial centre around the facilities of the Jean Lesage Airport.

We want to make it a truly international asset for the region. The aerotropolis term was mentioned to envisage the future solution. A reality that cannot be achieved with the existing road network, the airport administration believes. Autoroute Félix-Leclerc around L’Ancienne-Lorette would also need to be extended.
