New Champlain bridge corridor | Transforming Montreal’s horizons

Posted by Test Test
Posting date:6/21/2019 3:44 PM

The New Samuel de Champlain Bridge has an elegant cable-stayed design that will feature on Montreal’s landscape for the next 125 years. Apart from its visual appeal, this landmark will make a difference to local and international economies. It aims to connect people to the metropolitan region and as in an important link between Canada and the US. A staggering 50 million vehicles cross each year, making it one of North America’s busiest spans.

SNC-Lavalin is collaborating with ACS and HOCHTIEF as part of the ‘Signature on the Saint Lawrence Group’ consortium. Together we’re delivering the design, construction, financing and operations. We’re also contracted to handle ongoing maintenance, and rehabilitation.

Rising to a sizeable challenge

Building a structure of this scale requires extraordinary coordination and cooperation. We're proud of our teams who have worked within tough timelines while minimizing the impact on citizens and the environment. In that regard, the project was given the highest level of Envision certification (platinum) from the Institute of Sustainable Infrastructure in June 2018, leading the way for modern engineering and urban integration.

Creating safer, better connections

Our teams are motivated by changing our world for the better. Overall, the project improves traffic management, road safety, and access to the city of Montreal and the South Shore of the island. It is also transforming the way local communities cross and enjoy the Saint Lawrence River. Cyclists and pedestrians can travel safely along the multi-use path on the northbound structure, and enjoy exceptional views of the city from each of the four observation points. Drivers will also enjoy safer access to existing highways and roads through a series of interchanges. And the transit corridor will soon accommodate the new Réseau express métropolitain (REM).
