Rehabilitation of embankments in various sectors - National Battlefields Park

The National Battlefields Commission (NBC) wishes to carry out maintenance and repair work on retaining and securing works of various embankments on its Plains of Abraham property. The work must be carried out starting in the fall of 2022. The worksites are located along the embankments of Champlain Boulevard and Champlain Street, between Gilmour Hill and the Cap-Blanc staircase.

The first part of the work consists of carrying out the maintenance, repair and rehabilitation of existing structures, such as retaining nets against falling rock. The objective of this work is to ensure adequate performance of the structures until the end of their useful life.

The second part of the project consists of building new retaining structures to secure embankments composed of rock or soil. These are located in front and to the south-west of the belvedere on Georges-VI Avenue. The objective is to stabilize the portions of these embankments considered to pose a risk to public safety.
