TURCOT: Les travaux débutent

Quoi faire en cas de nuisances reliés aux travaux Turcot

 

Les travaux liés à la reconstruction de l’échangeur Turcot commencent d’un jour à l’autre et vont créer un bon nombre de nuisances et d’inconvénients pour le voisinage.

 

Le MTQ s’est engagé à surveiller le chantier de près et assurer que les entreprises de construction respectent les normes et les règlements de l’arrondissement.

Que ce soit à l’égard du bruit, de la poussière, des camions ou de la fermeture de rues, les résidents du quartier ont recours à plusieurs voies de communication avec le Ministère des Transports du Québec.

 

Ligne directe 24hres: 514- 873-1372

 

Un comité de bon voisinage a été mis sur pied et les réunions ont lieu au CRCS à St-Henri à tous les mois; le public est bienvenu d'assister et poser des questions concernant les impacts des travaux.

The Village des Tanneries, St Henri


The Village des Tanneries is a small neighborhood on the western edge of St- Henri that has been undergoing both an environmental and social revitalization in recent years, thanks to the combined efforts of local area residents, local community groups and the South West Borough.


The Citizens' Committee of the Village des Tanneries (CCVT) started as a small group of neighbors who decided to improve quality of life in this otherwise neglected, former industrialized area: More green spaces, tree planting, community gardens, neighborhood BBQs, etc.


We believe that by getting involved and by working together, average citizens can greatly influence city and community agencies to better tailor their services and projects to meet the needs of the community in which they live..  

 

Building a healthier community, one that reflects our needs and our values, can bring other benefits as well: reduced crime, decreased isolation, cleaner streets and alleys, ... not to mention an increased involvement in the democratic process, and a new sense of awareness and ownership towards oneself, one's neighbor and one's community.




The Village des Tanneries might seem, at first glance, to be one of the more disadvantaged and neglected neighborhoods in the city. Many of the homes and italian gardens that once flourished in the area, were expropriated in the late 60s when the Ville Marie Expressway was constructed in time for Expo '67. No protective measures were ever taken to buffer the community from the pollution of the highway overhead.

In the shadow of the Ville Marie Expressway, the community is sandwiched between rue St Jacques street to the north, the CN tracks to the south, rue St Remi to the West and rue De Courcelles to the East.

It's OUR community: It's up to US !
The active participation of all citizens will be needed to force a shift in the current government's 1960s approach to infrastructure and urban development. 

The Turcot interchange may well need to be redone...The question should rather be: What do we replace it with ? And do we really need to expropriate the homes of people to do it?

The CCVT, the Turcot Mobilization and most experts believe that more intelligent, more sustainable alternatives exist:
