The allocation of up to $C 1.2bn from the Investing in Canada infrastructure programme means the $C 3.3bn Quebec City structural transport project is now fully funded. The government of Quebec has already committed $C 1.8bn, while Quebec City will contribute $C 300m.
Due for completion in 2026, the project comprises a 23km light rail line, two ‘trambus’ BRT lines totalling 15km, and enhancements to the existing bus network including 16km of dedicated bus lanes and four park-and-ride terminals.
The U-shaped light rail line will run from Avenue Le Gendre via Sainte-Foy West and Laval University to Louis XIV in Charlesbourg with two underground sections totalling 3.5km. Services will be operated by a fleet of bidirectional LRVs, each with a capacity for 260 passengers. The line will operate between 05.00 and 01.00 with services running at 3-5-minute headways at peak times.
Last month Trudeau announced a $C 1.3bn federal commitment to the 5.5km extension of the Montreal metro Blue line from Saint-Michel to Anjou.
