Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier

On Mon­day, the Min­is­ter re­spon­si­ble for the Estrie re­gion, Dr. Ré­jean Hébert, along with Sher­brooke deputy Serge Cardin, con­firmed the fund­ing for the ex­ten­sion of the au­toroute 410 south of Sher­brooke. The two

Parti Québe­cois deputies made the an­nounce­ment on be­half of Min­is­ter Syl­vain Gau­dreault, who is the Min­is­ter of Trans­port and the Min­is­ter of Mu­nic­i­pal Af­fairs, the Re­gions and the Oc­cu­pa­tion of Ter­ri­tory.

“This project re­mains a pri­or­ity for my gov­ern­ment, thus, I am happy to in­form you that phase 2 of the project has been reg­is­tered into the Plan Québe­cois des in­fra­struc­tures,” said Min­is­ter Hébert. “The trans­port depart­ment can now pro­ceed with the plan­ning of the project, which fore­sees the con­struc­tion of a sec­tion be­tween route 108/143 in Len­noxville to the east­ern sec­tor, in front of the ex­per­i­men­tal farm of Agri­cul­ture Canada.”

“I would also like to take the op­por­tu­nity, this morn­ing, to men­tion that the ex­ten­sion work of au­toroute 410, go­ing from Univer­sity Boule­vard to the route 108/143 in Len­noxville, will take place and that phase 1 of the work will be fin­ished in 2015,” added Dr. Hébert.

Sher­brooke MNA, Serge Cardin, re­it­er­ated the im­por­tance of the ex­ten­sion project of the 410 for re­gional eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment. “This ex­ten­sion will not only re­solve the flow prob­lems re­lated to the traf­fic of peo­ple and mer­chan­dise, but will also con­nect Sher­brooke’s two uni­ver­si­ties. This will ul­ti­mately stim­u­late the de­vel­op­ment of our com­mu­ni­ties,” said Mr. Cardin.

The press con­fer­ence an­nounc­ing the fund­ing was held at the Mar­i­annhill Mis­sion­ary Cen­tre.
