Construction of a noise barrier on the south side of Highway 20


The ministère des Transports, in cooperation with the City of Beaconsfield, held a public information session about the project to install a noise barrier along Highway 20, in Beaconsfield, between rue Devon and rue Jasper. The Ministère’s 20-minute-long technical presentation was followed by a bilingual question period.

citizen consultation process


Following the technical presentation by the Ministère des Transports on May 17, the City is holding open house sessions on May 30 and June 6, from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., for the general public as well as meetings for specific situations with the owners living along the projected barrier. These sessions aim to better understand the planning and implementation process as well as the steps proposed by City Council. City representatives will be present to answer the residents’ questions.

In order to continue the citizen consultation, the City is launching a Léger 360 survey to reach a representative sample of the population of Beaconsfield. It is therefore possible that you will be contacted in the next few days by the firm Léger to answer questions about the noise barrier. We ask for your cooperation. The City will then evaluate the next steps for consultation and options.
