The Vil­lage-re­lais – put the road on hold

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

All year-long, driv­ers can stop in one of forty vil­lages-re­lais in Que­bec. These mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties of­fer a range of ser­vices that trav­el­ers need as well as the chance to dis­cover out of the or­di­nary land­scapes and at­trac­tions. The vil­lages-re­lais are si­t­u­ated along na­tional high­ways and known tourist routes, of­fer­ing ser­vices of qual­ity and safe and pleas­ant stop­ping ar­eas at all times. Trav­el­ers will find lodg­ing, food and gas.

A stop at a vil­lage-re­lais is a good way to counter the ef­fects of fa­tigue while driv­ing, a prin­ci­ple cause of death on the high­way. They are part of a net­work of safe stop­ping sites that have ser­vice ar­eas, rest stops, and rest stops for truck­ers. As well as ser­vices, they of­fer tourist, cul­tural and nat­u­ral at­trac­tions, and a wel­com­ing at­mos­phere.

While on the road, look for the blue signs and the ar­rows that will guide you to an in­for­ma­tion panel list­ing all the busi­nesses and public ar­eas of­fer­ing qual­ity ser­vices.

Vil­lage-re­lais in the East­ern Town­ships are Stanstead, Danville, Stor­n­away and Wee­don.
