Montreal Tunnel

August 7, 2011 by staff 

Montreal TunnelMontreal Tunnel, Crews have reopened the tunnel Ville-Marie in downtown Montreal, less than a week after a concrete beam fell on the road outside the tunnel ..

No one was injured in the accident on the highway Ville-Marie, going down the center of the city. Transport Minister Sam Hamad said Friday that engineers were giving the tunnel a final inspection before opening. Hamad said that with the end of the construction holiday, his ministry is working to ensure smooth roads.

Once that goal is achieved, he said he will make major revisions in the way Quebec deals with transport problems with an aging infrastructure. The Quebec Ministry of Transportation also plans to launch a January 2011 report on the grids of concrete that covers one end of the tunnel.

The piece that fell on Sunday was one of those networks. On Friday, the Parti Quebecois leader Pauline Marois said the government must take some responsibility for the collapse. He accused the province of awarding contracts to private companies that did repair work she describes as questionable. However, the Quebec Transport Minister Sam Hamad’s comments left out. He said the government is putting in place everything you need to keep your facilities safe.

Hamad has been a difficult road since the collapse of the tunnel last week.

He was ridiculed for saying that Quebecers should be confident that a road is safe if open.

Repairs scheduled for this weekend in the Champlain Bridge aging have been postponed.

The company that manages the bridge, said it is postponing the repairs until next week due to bad weather in the forecast.

Work will continue over the weekend in Montreal side of the approach to the bridge on Highway 15, with some lane closures.

Drivers are advised to take the highway to access the bridge Bonaventure in Montreal.
