Le West-Island, surtout! Et encore si ce sera uniquement sur le territoire de l'ile de Montreal.

Il n'y a que 3 arteres nord-sud dans le region, qui date de l'ere seignurial... les montees St-Charles / St Jean / des Sources. Surtout les deux premiers, qui sont tres tres tres surcharges durant les heures de pointe. Aussi, leurs viaducs sont les seuls qui traverse actuellement la 40, qui coupe le secteur en deux. Les viaducs et la 40 sont comme les ponts et la Saint-Laurent pour le Rive-Sud...
Aussi il y a des terrains vierges que la Ville de Montreal et leurs proprietaires veut developper et ont besoin de ce lien pour permettre les residents d'en y acceder.
Je vois mal comment on peut l'appeler un boulevard urbain... c'est un ROW d'autoroute. On ne peut pas construire un Ste-Catherine ou Sherbrooke ici. Si le chemin ne traverse pas la riviere, il n'y aura pas besoin d'etre un autoroute, oui, et on peut le batir en voie rapide a acces limite avec des carrefours a niveau, mais ce ne sera pas un boulevard urbain meme comme St Charles.
Well of course it adds traffic, it has been on the books as a "requirement" (and it really is... otherwise... there is no road to service the area) for the city to approve development permits for ca. 6000 residences, which just guessing probably would work out to about 24 000 vpd if you assume everyone is married and drives two cars every day (on the large end. But then, take into extra infill development and the like). 24 000 warrants a freeway to itself, but is small in the grand scheme of things in the area (Hwy 40 through the area has what... 100 000 vpd?)

I don't know what you mean about transit, there will be bus lanes in the project (inexplicably) and there is already commuter train service not that far away. But how can transit realistically serve people (like myself) who live and work in suburban areas? Bike lanes could sort of work for shorter distances, but not in winter and I'd probably end up fired for being stinky if I did in summer... And how can transit work for people, who have no interest in using transit because it is full of stinky poor people / is late / get splashed by passing vehicles waiting for bus / etc?
There are several issues with the West Island transport network that cause fuckups in various areas. 440 as per the plan would be wonderful. Also the Jacques-Bizard - Stillview overpass / 40-mini interchange is obvious. Futhermore, building de Salaberry would make the vehicle trips much more rational and help on the 40 and Gouin.
It is funny... the original owner of my house bought it in 1968 and had a map of the area as it was planned... and 440 is drawn on the map, Jacques-Bizard / Stillview drawn on the map (Jacques-Bizard was not even built yet - not even the bridge to ile-Bizard), de Salaberry going to Hwy 13 (all fields) etc etc. I guess sometimes you have to wait...
Full disclosure: if Hwy 440 was built-out fully (to Laval), my commute to work would be instead of roughly 40 minutes / 30 km it would be like 20 minutes and 20 km, maybe faster, especially so if 440 is not congested in the new areas. What is the impact of pollution, the economy and also about vehicle traffic numbers (AADT) if the cars are on the road for less distance and less time?

So live this day that you can look every damn man straight in the eye and tell him to go to hell.
