Steven Blaney, Member of Parliament for Bellechasse-Les Etchemins-Levis, is launching a public consultation on a possible third Quebec-Levis road link. He starts by inviting people from his riding, but he suspects that he might have a visit.
Mr. Blaney, who is also a candidate for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada, unveiled Wednesday morning the regional files he plans to work in 2017 and the third link tops the list. At the point where he sacrificed his traditional prebudget consultation.
“All the surveys show that the third link is a first-rate project for the population. I have always supported this project and I want to continue my work so that this vital infrastructure is born quickly. I therefore invite the public to present a solution that is advantageous both technically and financially, “Blaney said in a press release.
In his invitation to the citizens of the south shore, he uses statistics from the survey of the City of Levis demonstrating the crowds of citizens facing congestion and their great desire for fluidity.
Mr. Blaney will give the floor to engineer Jacques Huot, a consultant who has already worked on major projects, proposing to build a causeway to join the north shore to Ile d’Orleans, and then a tunnel to get there To the south shore. He estimates that it would cost $ 3.1 billion instead of the $ 4 billion estimated for a tunnel by the expert hired by the Quebec Ministry of Transport. Then he will collect their comments and suggestions.
The consultation will take place on Wednesday, February 15 at 7 pm at the Levis Convention and Exhibition Center.
