Road work on Cartier Avenue has resumed

Around 75 residents and merchants present at the information session

Road work on Cartier Avenue resumed yesterday, thanks to the City quickly calling upon the bond company for a new contractor to complete the work as soon as possible by mid-December.

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, held a public information session yesterday evening at the Beaconsfield Golf Club to inform around seventy-five residents and merchants that the work in progress on Cartier Avenue would be completed by mid-December.

“We facilitated the process to allow the road work to resume quickly and efficiently in order to restore traffic and find ways to make access easier to commercial activities,” stated Mayor Belvedere.

“The contractor has been in default since the end of November and could no longer complete the work. This situation is beyond the City’s control. Consequently, the City quickly called upon the bond company provided for in the contract in order for the work to resume as soon as possible, which has been accomplished,” added Mayor Belvedere.

On the morning of Monday, December 4, a new contractor was on site to resume and complete the road work in progress on the section of Cartier Avenue between Sainte-Claire and Salisbury Avenues. The planned phases consist of completing the foundation of the road, paving the street, rebuilding the sidewalks, and installing signage.

The work will continue in the coming days at an accelerated pace in order for the project to be completed as soon as possible, depending on weather conditions.

“We will be on site every day to ensure that the work is being completed as quickly as possible and that traffic will be restored on this major commercial artery. With the holiday season approaching, we would like to take this opportunity to invite all residents to support our local merchants,” said Mayor Belvedere in conclusion.
