The Canadian government will invest CA$18.4 million to improve rail infrastructure at the Port of Montreal, Minister of Transport Marc Garneau announced last week.

The intermodal project will "optimize" the port's rail network capacity, particularly in the port's interchange zone.

Work will include relocating underground and above-ground infrastructure, relocating and constructing a new road, and building rail lines to eliminate bottlenecks and increase rail traffic flow.

The Montreal Port Administration in partnership with the Ministere des transports du Quebec will oversee the project.

"Our government is investing in Canada's economy by making improvements to our trade and transportation corridors," said Garneau in a press release. "We are supporting projects that will efficiently move commercial goods to market and people to their destinations, stimulate economic growth, create quality middle-class jobs, and ensure that Canada's transportation networks remain competitive and efficient."
