Improvements to the entrance to Trudeau (Dorval) Airport in Montreal.
Feds to fund Dorval interchange upgrade
The federal government will contribute $385 million for infrasturcture work, including $150 million to upgrade the Dorval interchange, near the Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau Airport.
The construction will facillitate a future rail link between the airport and downtown Montreal.
About time! One of the worst entrances to an airport I've ever seen.
Wow, sounds like the US! It's only taken them 10 years to go from announcement to accepting bids. And, who says governments don't work in a timely manner... So, we all get to see the "old" Dorval for the meet-up. (Can we slip in through a back door to avoid one of the worst airport entrances - or will that look a little too suspicious?
Wow - suddenly our government is spending money! I wonder why that is...
But yeah... I sometimes head out that way by public transport. A two-hour ride from home! The train will make it a lot simpler, especially for people who use the airport for business a lot.
I actually had the opp to view the plans at the official plan launch last fall...impressive stuff. Hopefully they'll be able to make it as swanky as the plans.
That is interesting . . . In Calgary, they are about to do the same thing, connect the Light Rail Train (LRT) to the International airport. It will be happening in the coming years, I think by 2008? I need to check the signs at the stations, which tell you the timelines that they are renovating the LRT, and doing the expansion, as well!!!!! I'm really excited for this. It will be so easy, then, to get out of the city without a car.
OMG....Totally agree ! worst terminal entrance/arrival i've seen.
A labyrinthe of drywall panel, would be the best way to describe it.
On the positive side - the upgrade will give access to the downtown core easier (much needed).
