Traffic woes and noise complaints
Article mis en ligne le jeudi 6 septembre 2012
While the MUHC’s construction timeline is on schedule at the Glen Yards, the City of Montreal is causing new headaches for people who live on Northcliffe.
The reconstruction of a sewer pipe and water main along de Maisonneuve between Northcliffe and Decarie means access to Northcliffe will be blocked north of de Maisonneuve. The street will become a two-way thoroughfare north of Sherbrooke while work goes on so that residents can get home and others can access the Queen Elizabeth Health Complex.
The MUHC’s hospitals’ frameworks are now complete except for parking structures. The next major step will be to close up the entire building envelope before the end of November.
The last Good Neighbourly Relations Committee meeting of the MUHC multi-hospital construction also drew loud complaints from residents of neighbouring Westmount, who deplored the fact that trucks were entering the site as early as 2 a.m. when the regulation stipulates they cannot enter before 7 a.m.
The next Good Neighbourly Relations Committee is scheduled for Tues. Oct. 2 at 7 p.m. at 5100 de Maisonneuve.
