(Quebec) The opposition parties in the National Assembly denounce the improvisation surrounding the megaproject of the third link between Quebec and Lévis.

They commented on Tuesday on the information reported by Radio-Canada, according to which the Quebec-Lévis tunnel project could be modified again.

A real “comedy”, according to the parliamentary leader of Québec solidaire (QS), Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois.

“Seven iterations of the project, still no study. Seven versions of the project, still no expert who supports this fantastic project of the Coalition avenir Québec, “he denounced in a press briefing.

The Parti Québécois (PQ) also criticizes the Legault government for navigating this file on sight.

“We have been sailing in total limbo for five years, lamented PQ leader Paul St-Pierre Plamondon. We announced a project having no idea, essentially, what was behind this project. »

The government has still not released a single credible study, said interim leader of the Quebec Liberal Party (PLQ), Marc Tanguay.

“It takes study,” he insisted. We, what we are asking for, and that is what we were proposing, is to have studies on an additional north-south link [for] public transport, ”he said.

According to Radio-Canada, we are now considering drilling two tunnels under the St. Lawrence River, one of which would be exclusively dedicated to public transport, which could take the form of a tram line.

The other “tube” would have two floors and would be reserved for cars, according to reports.

Last year, the government presented an “update” of the project which it valued at 6.5 billion.

He planned to build two tunnels, with a total of four lanes, none of which would have been entirely reserved for public transport.

One thing is certain, the Legault government expects Ottawa to pay 40% of the bill, despite the fact that it has not received any firm commitment to this effect to date.

The new information regarding the third link comes as Quebec Premier Francois Legault meets with his Canadian counterpart Justin Trudeau.

The two men traveled to Lévis on Tuesday to announce that the Davie shipyard will be integrated into the National Shipbuilding Strategy.
