A gain for the park, a beneficial project for citizens

Les amis de la montagne’s public forum held at Smith House on March 19, concerned the plans to reconfigure the area of Chemin de la Côte-des-Neiges from Avenue Cedar to Hill Park Circle.

Invited speakers from the Ville de Montréal included landscape architects Lucie Robin and Daniel Chartier from the parks division and engineers Stéphane Blais and Guy Pellerin from the transportation division, to present this significant project that requires the coordination between a variety of city services.

Taking advantage of the major work planned in 2014 on the aqueducts and other infrastructures in this critical intersection that connects an entrance to Mount Royal Park with the Montreal General Hospital and a residential neighbourhood, the project consists of two main components:

Repair work and structural redesign of the Chemin de la Côte-des-Neiges

This road configuration is planned to improve pedestrians comfort and security, greening of the sector and a reduction of the flow of traffic on Chemin de la Côte-des-Neiges. Timetable: 2015-2016.

Reconfiguration of the Avenue Cedar ramp

The redefinition of the Cedar ramp will aim to enhance this important entry point of Mount Royal Park with a particular visual signature and the planning of a scenic lookout. Timetable: 2016.
