CDPQ Infra, a subsidiary of La Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, on the July 28th, 2016 has begin an important stage in the environmental assessment process for its public transit project, the Réseau électrique métropolitain (REM): an information and consultation period for the project’s Environmental Impact Study.
The REM is a new 67 km integrated public transit network designed to connect downtown Montréal, the South Shore, the West Island (Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue), the North Shore (Deux-Montagnes) and the airport through a new, fully automated electric light rail transit (LRT) system.
To launch the information and consultation period, CDPQ Infra is publishing its Environmental Impact Study.
Because the study – which includes three addenda – comprises thousands of pages, and with a transparency objective in mind, CDPQ Infra has prepared several information documents summarizing the study to make the contents of the study more accessible:
- A summary report on the study which shows the project’s evolution over the past few months;
- A shorter summary setting out the main elements; and
- Fact sheets showing the most recent changes in the project’s route.
