June 3, 2019 - Planted over 30 years ago, the shrubs found along the Rue de la Commune bicycle path have reached the end of their lifetime and are producing more branches than leaves. They will be progressively replaced with new vegetation and street furniture. A geotextile membrane has temporarily been put in place, along with gravel, to control overgrowth of roots and other invasive species.
New landscaping work has started since late June 2019.
Update – July 29, 2019: The first phase of work is now complete. More than 225 trees, shrubs and perennials have been planted to create a natural cover between the Saint-Pierre entrance and the Alexandra Quay. More work is planned for the summer as well as next spring.
