Infrastructure Work in 2013: Residents Save More than $4 Million Thanks to Infrastructure Grants

BEACONSFIELD, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - Dec. 2, 2013) - Beaconsfield Mayor Georges Bourelle is pleased to announce that, thanks to government grants secured by the City, the residents of Beaconsfield saved more than $4 million in infrastructure costs for projects carried out in 2013.

"We are very pleased with these results. Rigorous management will ensure that the quality of our municipal infrastructure is maintained and, over time, this will translate into significant savings and a better quality of life for Beaconsfield's residents, at a fraction of the investment cost," said Mr. Bourelle.

The grants reduced the City of Beaconsfield's financial burden by 50 to 75 per cent.

The largest grant was allocated to the rehabilitation of 5,000 linear meters of water mains in the southeast section of the city. The project, which involved lining the pipes, cost $2.6 million and received close to $2 million in funding.

A further grant of nearly $750,000 was received for work on St. Andrew Street, where the entire municipal infrastructure was rebuilt. Work included replacing the water mains and sanitary sewer lines, rebuilding the side ditches and the road base, and laying new asphalt.

A grant of close to $1.2 million was also allocated to rebuilding the infrastructure of Fieldfare Avenue, Woodside Road and Woodside Crescent. Again, important reconstruction work was carried out, including replacing the water mains and sanitary sewer lines, rebuilding the side ditches and road base, and laying new asphalt.

In total, the municipal government received nearly $4.2 million in funding through the Quebec-Municipalities Infrastructure Program, and from the Gasoline Excise Tax Fund and Quebec's contribution, thus reducing the financial burden on the residents of Beaconsfield.
