A major upgrade project is to be carried out for Montreal’s Louis-Hippolyte-La Fontaine Tunnel in Canada. The work is expected to cost US$386 million (C$500 million) and will commence in 2020. New fire protection technology will be installed, along with more modern signage and lighting. Better emergency provision will also be installed, to meet the latest safety requirements. A dedicated lane will be for car-pooling or buses only, in a bid to reduce peak time congestion while the improvements are being carried out. The work is expected to be complete by 2024.
