Port of Trois-Rivieres’ project ‘On Course for 2020’ has received the Distinction Award from the Association Quebecoise des Transports (AQTr), in addition to being a finalist in the Infrastructure and Coup de Cœur categories.
For the past twenty years, the Association Quebecoise des Transports has organised an annual competition to recognise the excellence of transportation projects. In particular, the Distinction Award, chosen by the AQTr Board of Directors from among all the nominations submitted, is awarded to a major project that stands out for its structuring contribution in the field of transportation for Quebec society.
“We are very proud to receive this award from a renowned association such as the AQTr, in particular considering the calibre of the projects in the running,” said Danielle St-Amand, Chair of the Board of Directors of the Port of Trois-Rivieres.
“We share this award with the users and workers of the port, as well as all the ‘On Course for 2020’ partners. Without them, we would not have been able to complete this ambitious development plan three years ahead of schedule and within the allocated budgets,” said Gaetan Boivin, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Port of Trois-Rivieres.
The gala will be held June 18 2019 in Montreal, and the Port of Trois-Rivieres team will find out if the ‘On Course for 2020’ plan also wins the Infrastructure and Coup de cœur awards.
