MONTREAL, Que.-- A major funding investment has been announced for the Montreal Port Authority. The Honourable Denis Lebel, Minister of Infrastructure, Communities and Intergovernmental Affairs and Minister of the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec, was joined today by Sylvie Vachon, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Montréal Port Authority, for the announcement.
The three main components of the project involve expanding container capacity in the Viau sector, deepening vessel berths, and improving truck traffic flow in and around the port. This work is expected to significantly increase the Port's handling capacity, facilitate the accommodation of larger vessels, and greatly improve traffic flow for the more than 2,500 trucks that pass through the port daily.
