The Proposed Project

Transport Canada is proposing to set up a place to store crash-tested vehicles (the "cemetery") at the Motor Vehicle Test Center (MVTC), Blainville. The MVTC is a fully fenced facility with controlled access located on federal land.

It is anticipated that site preparation will be required, including the removal of existing vegetation. The projected area is approximately 6000 m2. The project includes the placement of gravel and dirt on the storage area, as well as the installation of culverts and backfilling of the ditch to create access via the road to the south of the projected area. The work is scheduled for spring 2023.
