The Project

Transport Canada is proposing to build a site for the storage of crash-tested vehicles at the department's Motor Vehicle Test Center (MVTC) in Blainville, Quebec. The MVTC is a fully fenced, controlled access facility located on federal lands. The project involves installing 18 inches of gravel on top of which vehicles will be stored. It is anticipated that site preparation will be required, including the removal of existing vegetation. The creation of a path is necessary to accommodate vehicle access. The work will take place in May 2020.
