It’s official, the federal government is buying the Quebec Bridge and will invest $40 million per year in it for the next 25 years to ensure its “long-term viability.”

While in Quebec, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced this morning the conclusion of an agreement with the current owner of the century-old bridge, the Canadian National Railway Company (CN).

The Quebec Bridge is a Source of pride for residents of Quebec and for all Canadians. It is a timeless symbol of what is possible when we work hard together.

The investments announced must make it possible to extend the useful life of the bridge for decades to come, notably through an increase in the frequency of replacement of partsindicates Mr. Trudeau’s office. The rehabilitation program also includes a contribution component for the painting and aesthetics of this historic infrastructure.

Today’s repatriation agreement with CN will ensure the bridge is protected and restored for future generationscontinues Justin Trudeau.
