Transport Quebec hearing into how Turcot work will further affect NDG

A public hearing was held Thursday evening by Transport Quebec officials on how the Turcot interchange work will further affect NDG.

A group fo roughly 100 concerned Cotes-des-Neiges and NDG citizens came to hear TQ officials explain upcoming major road work on the interchange.

Among many mitigating measures, officials explained they plan on building a five-meter sound barrier around major intersections.

They also plan on preventing any jackhammering, for example, after 6 pm.

Despite the explainations, borough councillor Peter McQueen says he's not quite convinced the work will not have an effect on the area.

"I wish they didn't have to take St Jacques down. I hope they've thought this thing thru. The hospital opening in one year".

When asked by CJAD News if there's concern, McQueen answered, "concern, yes".

Road work is expected to last two years.

Traffic problems began with the construction on the McGill superhospital.

That has led to a number of lane and street closings.

As well, repairs closed two Turcot ramps.
