Québec, October 17th, 2007 – At the request of Line Beauchamp, Minister of Sustainable Development, Environment and Parks, the Bureau d’audiences publiques sur l’environnement (BAPE) has today made public its inquiry and public hearing report on the Project to improve the road network in Vaudreuil-Dorion. This inquiry and public hearing mandate began on May 22nd of this year. The commission in charge of examining the project was chaired by Pierre André, seconded by Jean-Claude Panisset, commissioner.

At the end of its analysis, the commission concludes that the project proposed by the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion, with the proposed mitigation and follow-up measures, is justified. However, the commission considers that a few improvements are necessary to make this project more acceptable from an environmental and social standpoint. It is of the opinion that a bicycle path should be laid out along Rue Félix-Leclerc, that an information and discussion period should be held with local residents prior to the commencement of each of the planned interventions, that no work should be done between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., that an evaluation of the structure of the residences near the planned bridges or overpasses should be carried out before and at the end of the work, that the lighting should be optimized to minimize light pollution while ensuring the safety of citizens, and that the results of the follow-ups should be made public by the City.
