Since the spring of 2013, we regularly intervene to improve the universal access of terraces located in two key areas of Arrondissement de Ville-Marie, namely Old-Montréal (Place Jacques-Cartier and Saint-Paul Street) and the pedestrian section of Sainte-Catherine Street in the Village (between Saint-Hubert Street and Papineau Avenue).

Many terraces do not meet the universal access standards:  lack of an access ramp or impracticable ramp; insufficient clearance to allow the movement of people with disabilities; etc.

The Borough gradually improved its approach and intensified its follow-ups.  These efforts provided results.  During the summer of 2015, we noted marked improvements.

Our office will pursue its follow-ups and pay particular attention to the Saint-Paul Street reconstruction project and to the revamping of Place Jacques-Cartier.  We want to make sure that the new facilities located on the public domain, namely terraces, respect the universal access standards and good practices.
