Montreal Is Getting A 27-km-Long 'Green Corridor' To Connect 2 Of The City's Biggest Parks

A new Montreal "green corridor" will link together two of the city's largest parks, five boroughs, and the suburbs of Montréal-Ouest and Côte-Saint-Luc.

Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante and the president and CEO of Hydro-Québec, Sophie Brochu, announced this new "green corridor," with work slated to begin by 2023.

This first green corridor on the Agglomeration is part of our desire to create green corridors that encourage active and recreational travel and contribute to increasing biodiversity in the area.

The "green corridor" will link the Bois-de-Saraguay nature park to Angrignon Park through a 27-kilometre network of bike paths, pedestrian walkways, and landscaping. 

According to a statement, the corridor will "promote biodiversity, connectivity and sustainable mobility in addition to improving the living environment of local populations."

The corridor will be developed in parallel with Hydro-Québec's conversion of the Aqueduct-Saraguay transmission line, which will "modernize" the city's electrical grid. 

The project is set to begin in 2023 and is estimated to be delivered by 2027. 

Building the green corridor will cost roughly $50 million, with $40 million coming from the City of Montreal.
