  1. I have wondered about this for quite sometime. A recent trip to europe only made me more aware of it. Why do we, in Montreal, have such large suburban trains? This in comparison to paris for example. here the new bimodal locomotives for the AMT as oposed to this: Pictured above is a Parisian RER train. They run on their own tracks as well as SNCF tracks. They appear to be between a conventional metro and a regular train in size. Meanwhile our AMT trains seem to be regional trains. I wondered why are OUR suburban trains so large and cumbersome, requiring locomotives and what not, while elsewhere they are light and quick. It certainly is not a distance issue, as the parisian RERs run MUCH farther distances than our AMT trains. It does not seem to be a cost issue either. And while i am aware that not all AMT lines are electrified, they very well should be. the whole point of public transport (as i see it) is to move people in a way that reduces congestion and pollution. I use the paris example, but other cities as copenhaggen or london have similar suburban trains to those in paris.
  2. La route 116 coupe la ville de Longueuil en deux. Le Vieux-Longueuil et St-Hubert sont éffectivement séparés par cette route provinciale construite aux standards autoroutiers. La ville de Longueuil avait prévu dans le passé possiblement prolonger la rue Ste-Hélène. J'ai pris cette idée et j'ai incorporé un passage pré-existant que j'ai adapté pour le prolongement de cette route. Le but? Créer un lien entre Longueuil et St-Hubert tout en ouvrant des terrains vacants pour la possibilité d'y avoir du dévelopement. (Oui je sais qu'actuellement Longueuil se sert de ce vaste terrain pour un dépot de neige... ce n'est qu'une vision!) The biggest constraint with coming up with this plan was the unfortunate location of the railroad tracks. In order to permit for a bridge over the tracks, the road has to take a somewhat abrupt 90 degree turn. This is my first experiment in infrastructure planning. (I've done architecture and 3D renderings solely to date). Qu'est ce que vous en pensez? Le 2eme graphique, celui qui montre l'ensemble de la surface, je l'ai fait rapidement, ignorez la faible qualité Commentaires? Est-ce que c'est réaliste? Est-ce que ca serait une bonne chose? I think improving street connectivity between these two boroughs of Longueuil is important. I suppose there are other ways of accomplishing the connection, such as a larger bridge overpass, but i gave myself the objective of trying to use existing infrastructure. Vue d'ensemble Initial Proposed Close-up Merci!
  3. J'ai lu sur Wikipédia qu'il avait un plan pour un ligne rouge sur le Métro. Si le Métro commence à utiliser des roues en acier, serait-il possible d'utiliser le tunnel du Mont-Royal pour une ligne de métro (même une ligne de métro de surface.)?
