Reconstruction of Queen Mary Road
From Northcote Road to MacDonald Avenue
Status (Northbound): COMPLETE
Status (Southbound): COMPLETE
Beginning June 18, the Town will begin major reconstruction on Queen Mary Road, which will continue until late August. The work includes significant excavation of the road surface from MacDonald to just after Northcote Road. The north lanes will be redone in the first round of work, while the south lanes will be rebuilt beginning in mid-July.
This work will have important impacts on drivers and residents living in this sector, so in the spirit of the upcoming Olympics in London, we present to you the following Summer Games:
PARKING HEAVYWEIGHT LIFTING
There is no way to sugarcoat it: parking will be challenging for residents living along Queen Mary Road. On-street parking will be prohibited on Queen Mary throughout this project. As well, during excavation work on your side of the street, you will not be able to access your driveway. We therefore recommend that you park on nearby streets, depending on which ones are closest to you:
- Dufferin Road
- Finchley Road
- Holmdale Road
- Stratford Road
- Cressy Road
- Heath Road
- Thurlow Road
Don’t worry! Parking permits will not be required on adjoining streets, and you can park overnight without penalty. There’s also no need to contact Public Security for overnight parking permissions. You will receive a notice in your mailbox when parking restrictions go back into effect.
TOWN HALL HIGH JUMP
Please note that even though the parking lot at Town Hall will be inaccessible, services will continue to be offered during regular business hours. Two visitor parking spaces will be created on Stratford Road, beside Town Hall, so that you can continue to have easy access.
OVERCOME ANY OBSTACLE
As of Wednesday, June 13, the 51 bus route will not be affected by this work. Should that change, however, the route would likely be temporarily relocated to Côte Saint-Luc Road, between Clanranald and Fielding Avenues. For more information on scheduling and potential temporary stops, please contact the STM at 514 STM-INFO (514 786-4636) or visit their website at www.stm.info.
As this project progresses, we will keep you updated with the most current information. You can also follow Hampstead on Twitter for quick up-to-date announcement throughout the summer. Find us at @hampsteadQC.
