Development of the green belt on Pierre-Dupuy Avenue by the Port of Montreal

As a member of the Greening Leaders Committee of Montreal, the MPA is committed to continuing its efforts to green its properties. This commitment is part of both the MPA's Sustainable Development Action Plan and the City of Montreal's Canopy Action Plan. 

In this context, the strip of land bordering Pierre-Dupuy Avenue and berths M2 to M6 of the Port of Montreal was selected as a site of interest. This belt of land also borders La Route Verte bicycle path for nearly one (1) km. The MPA intends to landscape this strip of land that has been left uncultivated.

The project works include constructing a 450-metre long pedestrian walkway, two small paved squares, an observation point, a new guardrail along the edge of a concrete retaining wall and the planting of approximately 40 trees.

Notice of Determination - Development of the green belt on Pierre-Dupuy Avenue of the Port of Montreal

 July 21, 2023 –The Montreal Port Authority (MPA) has determined that the proposed project Development of the green belt on Pierre-Dupuy Avenue is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

Mitigation measures taken into account for this determination are:

  • Monitoring of machinery (good working order, effective pollution control systems, equipment maintenance inspection, etc.)
  • Control of erosion, runoff, dust emissions
  • Requirement for white noise backup alarms
  • Requirement for measures to reduce the noise from dump trucks
  • Establishment of a monitoring program during the construction phase

Therefore, the MPA may perform any duty or function to enable the project to be carried out in whole or in part.
