Environmental mitigation measures :
The REM project aims to integrate harmoniously with its immediate surroundings, which is why more than 85% of the work will be carried out on public domain, on existing road and railway rights-of-way. At the same time, however, some brush clearing and deforestation work will be realized in two sequences, before March 1st and after August 15th, which are necessary so the REM rail infrastructure, stations and access roads can be constructed. In the next few weeks, branch removal and tree and shrub cutting will take place in your sector.
Mitigation measures :
- Work will be performed outside the nesting season (March 1st to August 15th)
- These activities will be supervised and coordinated by our environmental experts, and will follow industry best practices and applicable standards and regulations;
- At-risk plant species and trees will be relocated;
- Through a reforestation program, the same number of trees that were cut in temporary construction zones will be replanted, and an additional 10% will be planted in the municipal territory or borough where the trees were cut.
