Recognizing that efficient transportation links are required for the development of employment areas, the Plan proposes to improve their accessibility, both for workers and for goods (see Objective 3).
In addition to solving network discontinuity problems, the reconfiguration of some roads will serve to redevelop and enhance the image of employment areas while increasing the number of high-quality sites available for economic activities.
In connection with projected changes to the road network, redevelop partly unstructured or underused employment areas. These areas will undergo a detailed planning process following the adoption of the Master Plan (see Chapter 4). They include:
The Airport surroundings, in connection with actions involving the highway network near the Dorval traffic circle;
The area along Côte-de-Liesse and its potential redevelopment as an urban boulevard;
The industrial spaces in the Décarie / Cavendish / Jean-Talon West area, where access will be improved by the construction of new road links;
The industrial spaces in the L’Anse-à-l’Orme area in the West Island, in connection with the reconfiguration of the Morgan Boulevard interchanges at the intersections of highways 40 and 20, as well as the reconfiguration of the service roads;
The area along the Autoroute Bonaventure, in connection with its replacement by an urban boulevard.
