Upgrade of power transmission system between LaSalle and Saint-Laurent and creation of green corridor

  • Rebuilding an overhead transmission line over a distance of 18 km.
  • Conversion to 315 kV of three 120-kV transformer substations: Rockfield (Lachine),
    Hampstead (Côte-Saint-Luc) and Laurent (Saint-Laurent).

The project consists in replacing aging equipment to maintain the reliability of electricity supply, meet future electricity needs and support greater Montréal’s economic development.

For this project, Hydro-Québec, the city of Montreal, the Town of Montreal West and the other municipal partners have committed to work together to promote greening and active transportation initiatives along the existing line right-of-way. The creation of a green corridor could include a bike path, a walking path, recreational amenities and landscaping to improve quality of life for residents.

Hydro-Québec invites the public to meet with its representatives and learn about the project at an open house meeting to be held on:

Wednesday, October 23, 2019, from 3 to 8 p.m.
at the Montreal West Town Hall (Music Room)
50 Westminster South, Montreal West

Hydro-Québec representatives will inform residents about the proposed project, answer any questions residents may have and gather their comments.
