      A city crew arrived in Outremont this morning and removed the Bixi bike station on Bloomfield near Bernard so that the street can be repaved, just days after it was paved.

      Instead of removing the station a road crew simply paved around it, leaving an  approximately 12 metre by 2 metre stretch of the road uneven and unpaved.

      City officials say there was an obvious lack of communication and many residents are deploring the waste of taxpayers money.

        Why is it that this tends to happen 24hrs AFTER ? The Hydro pole in MTL-North was removed the day AFTER they poured the concrete for the sidewalks, The stands are removed the day AFTER the asphalt was laid..COME ON PEOPLE IS THIS COMPETENCY OR COMPLACENCY?

        The blue collar thugs laugh at the people who pay their salary, Blame it on the unions.Upper management is afraid of them.They might go on strike if told to do their job efficiently! Just another lovely aspect of Quebec culture.

          @steve WOW!
          It rained today...is that the unions fault as well...It never ceases to amaze me how people will blame unions for everything!

          If you followed the story, you would know that the supervisor, a non-unionized person decided to pave around the bike stand...The city confirmed this.. When the boss tells you to do something..you do it....Unionized or not

          Please please educate yourself about unions and how they work before commentating on them, and blaming them for everything

        Apparently, there are no significant consequences for the incompetent; only for their victims.

        Don't worry about the money it cost t do this...They can always take more money out of workers pensions

        Time create a new law. We will call it the common sense law. Any contractor from now on who does not use this will have to complete the repairs that were created by nothing but shear stupidity on their own time and with their own salaried workers. That way they will think twice about making us look bad throughout the world and will also teach the city to make sure where the contract has to be done will be ready, and they should be able to put up signs in the area saying they are ready to work but the city is not so we will know who is at fault.
