Terminus Mansfield

Citation

L’AMT a loué un terrain de 5 200 m2 situé au sud du terminus centre-ville (situé au 1000 de la Gauchetière Ouest) et bordé par les rues St-Antoine, St-Jacques, Mansfield et les voies ferrées du CN. Ce terrain de stationnement sera transformé en terminus d’autobus temporaire avec 6 quais d’embarquement et 4 postes de régulation. Des travaux de drainage, d’asphaltage, d’éclairage et d’aménagement paysager seront réalisés pour rendre le site convivial et sécuritaire. Des abribus et autres équipements seront installés pour le confort des usagers. Le site sera exploité comme stationnement les fins de semaine offrant une possibilité de 55 places de stationnement.

Échéancier des travaux -

Construction: été-automne 2016 - Mise en service : automne 2016

Citation
Faced with growing ridership and an expected traffic crunch, Montreal's regional transit authority may open a second downtown bus terminal for South Shore commuters.

 

The temporary "complementary terminal" would be located in the area bounded by St-Antoine, St-Jacques and Mansfield Sts. and Canadian National train tracks. The spot is now a parking lot.

 

The open-air terminal would have six boarding areas that could have up to 40 bus departures per hour, show preliminary estimates by the Agence métropolitaine de transport (AMT).

 

The location is southeast of the current South Shore bus terminal, which is under the office tower at 1000 de la Gauchetière St.

 

Linked to the Bonaventure métro station, that bus terminal - known as the terminus centre-ville - is served by more than 60 South Shore bus routes. About 47,000 passengers ride the 1,800 buses that serve the terminal weekdays.

 

The number of commuters who use the terminal grew by three per cent in 2012 to reach 12.5 million.

 

Overcrowding is one reason more buses can't be added, state AMT documents obtained by The Gazette. A second terminal is needed because of an expected increase in traffic-causing roadwork, including the reconstruction of the Turcot Interchange, which will continue until 2020, the documents say.

 

As part of preparations for the $3.7-billion Turcot project, Quebec had announced it was looking for a location that could welcome more South Shore buses.

 

 

The AMT studied several alternatives and found the proposed site "has the most potential" because it is close to the current terminal and to Bonaventure métro, the documents say.

 

"Work of the Turcot will cause congestion along the A10/Champlain Bridge axis, and we want to give commuters an efficient alternative," AMT spokesperson Claudia Martin said. "If we want to meet the demand (for more transit) and allow for a greater number of buses to travel to the city centre, we need a space to receive them."

 

In the coming weeks, the AMT is to hire consultants to do the required final studies that will consider the ridership potential of the site, the layout of the terminal, and the type of passenger shelters that it would feature. Results are expected early in 2014.

 

The authority isn't ready to make public the estimated cost of the project or suggest when it might open to the public, Martin said.

 

The AMT does not own the land in question but would rent it for a period of 10 years, she said. The AMT foresees the new terminal as a temporary solution that will only be in place for about a decade.

 

That's because it expects a proposed new light-rail transit system to eventually carry people between the South

 

Shore and Montreal via the span that will eventually replace the Champlain Bridge. That LRT could cost as much as $2 billion and it's unclear who would pay for it. The new bridge is expected to open in 2021.

 

The current South Shore terminal serves buses operated by the AMT, the Réseau de transport de Longueuil, and authorities serving other cities south of Montreal.

 

The AMT has studied several scenarios to deal with overcrowding at the terminal. In 2009, it proposed an elaborate, $520-million plan that involved the creation of a transit hub, including a new South Shore bus terminal, on land southwest of St-Antoine and Peel Sts. The hub would have been part of a major redevelopment of the area being planned by real-estate developer Cadillac Fairview. The project never got off the ground and that land is still a parking lot.

L'appel d'offres pour la construction du terminus Mansfield a été publié aujourd'hui : https://seao.ca/OpportunityPublication/ConsulterAvis/Categorie?ItemId=9b29e830-215e-4bf1-be67-542ed8206e6a&SubCategoryCode=C02&callingPage=4&ColumnAction=1&searchId=0149067a-a14a-4a02-958b-13df266ba51e&VPos=0

 

6 quais de débarquement et l'élimination complète du stationnement (215 espaces) entre les rues Mansfield, Saint-Jacques et Saint-Antoine.

Même avec le SLR on peut imaginer que bon nombre de bus pourraient venir au centre ville (y compris faire terminer certaines routes au TCV plutôt qu'à Angrignon ou Radisson, par exemple); l'AMT a effectivement le don de transformer le temporaire en permanent (champlain bus lane, train de Blainville, etc.).

L'accès au métro se fait par ou? Et je crois que le terminus centre-ville, un coup la construction du SLR terminée, devrait servir à accueillir des bus en provenance de plein de destinations sur la rive sud comme Sorel, Saint-Hyacinthe, etc.

Ce terrain a un grand potentiel de développement future. Dans un premier temps, cela me semble être un bon endroit pour créer un pôle secondaire pour le terminus centre-ville. Comme il est voisin du 1000 de La Gauchetière et de la Place Bonaventure, les gens n'auront qu'à traverser la rue pour rejoindre le métro. On peut aussi supposer qu'un jour un projet plus élaboré soit proposé, pour une meilleure intégration souterraine de ces nouvelles activités. Des espaces en hauteur à vocation diverses pourront aussi certainement s'ajouter dans des phases ultérieures.

L'accès se fait en traversant la rue pour se rendre au 1000 de la Gauchetière.

Je vais trahir mon âge... ça me rappelle le temps où le terminus de la STRSM (l'ancêtre du RTL) était là où est maintenant l'OACI. Sa configuration était semblable. J'y ai attendu la 45 trop souvent par des journées glaciales pour aller rejoindre ma blonde sur la Rive-Sud...
