MONTREAL, Dec. 27, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The City of Montreal wishes to
notify the public that dedicated snow removal crews have now cleared
away 52 % of the snow from Montreal streets and sidewalks. The 3000 or
so employees who are carrying out this large-scale operation were back
to work on Thursday morning, after a 36-hour break prescribed by a
provincial regulation respecting the hours of work and rest. This is
the second snow clearing operation of the 2013-2014 winter season.
"We are aware that this is a time when there are more people circulating
on the City's roads and sidewalks. Our teams are on the job to clear
away the remnants of Montreal's last storm as quickly as possible.
Unless we get another significant snowfall, snow removal should be
complete by the beginning of next week," stated Anie Samson, City of
Montreal Executive Committee Vice-President and member responsible for
public safety and services for citizens.
In order for snow removal operations to run smoothly, Montreal citizens
are urged to park their car properly, to respect signage and to opt for
public transportation whenever possible. As some 2200 vehicles are
currently circulating on Montreal streets, the City wishes to remind
the public to take extra care around snow removal equipment.
