Canada and Quebec to fund rail bridge project over Mistassini River
The Government of Canada is contributing over $12 million to this project, and the Government of Quebec is investing more than $24.1 million.
This financial support comes from the New Building Canada Fund, Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component—National and Regional Projects.
Construction of the railway bridge includes the connection to the existing railway, a rail yard on the west side of the river, a rail link to the industrial park on the east side of the Mistassini River, and installation of a surface allowing for emergency vehicle traffic.
Once completed, this project will support the RCM of Maria-Chapdelaine in the development of its industrial park by thanks to improving daily traffic for the transportation of goods from one side of the river to the other. ■
