The Prime Minister said Thursday that an announcement confirming the controversial “Third Link” project will take place in the coming days.

In a coach assembly plant in Sainte-Claire, in Beauce-Appalaches, he praised the project estimated at more than 10 billion and was applauded by the workers gathered to listen to him.

He criticized all the opposition parties for saying no to the third link, arguing that a new link is needed between the city centers of Quebec and Lévis, called to become a second “economic metropolis”.

So even with new modes of transport such as the future tramway in Quebec, traffic will increase, in particular due to the delivery of goods with trucks.

“It is expected, with the increase in population, that the number of minutes of waiting on the two bridges (in Quebec) will be longer than the waiting times on the bridges in Montreal,” he said. find out at a press conference.

The Coalition avenir Québec (CAQ) was elected and won almost the entire Capitale-Nationale region in 2018 by committing to carry out the third link project.

Six months before the elections, the precise details of this project and the studies to support it are still awaited.
