  • Complete the waterside roadway connecting the Borough of Verdun to Old Montréal by designing a public waterfront corridor, following the relocation of the Bonaventure Expressway and its conversion to an urban boulevard (see Objective 3 and Chapter 4).
  • Develop interpretive tools for the various components of the waterside roadway, such as observation sites and signs for features of interest such as the Lachine Rapids or certain old villages.
  • Complete the bikeway network including the Montréal Island perimeter bikeway, and extend it to Île des Soeurs and Île Bizard (see Objective 3).
  • Ensure the harmonious integration of design elements, facilities and enhancement activities of the waterside roadway with the neighbouring residential environments.
  • Maximize physical and visual contact with water by designing public riverbanks accordingly and initiating a program for acquiring private waterfront properties for conversion into parks or naturalization.
  • Protect and enhance waterfront parks and green spaces.
  • Continue developing the Blue Network in cooperation with various partners, particularly the federal and Québec governments and the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal.
  • Favour the protection and enhancement of the numerous islands, islets and shallows of the Montréal archipelago by integrating them into the Blue Network and participating in regional initiatives in collaboration with municipalities, regional county municipalities and concerned organizations.
  • Design public waterfronts in order to make them accessible for swimming when water quality permits and install nautical facilities in areas that do not yet have them (docks and boat ramps).
