Camilien-Houde Way / Rememberence Drive:
This Montreal road is a parkway that crosses “The Mountain” (Designation of the Mount Royal by Montreal Locales). The posted speed limit is 50 km/h (31.25 mph) because of the many sharp curves and hills. Mount Royal Parkway is a good link from Westmount to eastern Montreal boroughs.

Junction Log (Rememberance Drive):
At its western end, the road ends with a “Garlic Interchange”. On westbound, there are a few cemetery entrances. At km 1, there is an exit to access the Beaver Lake Parking Lot. At km 2, there is a roundabout to access the main parking of the Mount Royal Park.

Junction Log (Camilien-Houde Way):
Then, the divided highway ends, and sharp curves and steep hills begin. Many falling rocks signs are posted. There is an exit at km 3 to access the Camilien-Houde lookout. The road ends a kilometre further, where it meets Mont-Royal Ave, Park Ave and Sainte-Catherine Hill Road in a complex intersection.



Souligny Avenue Expressway:
The Souligny Avenue Expressway, in the Montreal area, has been built in the old corridor that would have been used to accept A-20 when it would have used the actual A-720 (Ville-Marie Expressway) roadway, then would have bifurcated to connect with A-25. This project is still on the table but environmental groups are blocking the construction. When you access the Souligny Avenue Expressway from A-25, the BGS signs says “Centre-ville” (downtown) because of the tabled project that would link it with A-720.

Eastern End: Honoré-Beaugrand Street (Montréal,Tétreauville Area) (km 0)

Western End: Dickson Street(Montréal,Hochelaga-Maisonneuve Borough) (km 3)

The Souligny Avenue Expressway has been built from the partnership of MTQ (Québec DOT) and Montreal City in 1999.



Notre-Dame Street / Ville-Marie Expressway (to be linked with Souligny Avenue Exwy):
This expressway is the most congested artery in Montreal. MTQ (Québec DOT) presented projects to enlarge the expressway and convert it to a freeway. However, all proposals were cancelled because of the inhabitants of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve Boroughs and ecological groups.

Eastern End: Dickson Street (a 6-laned boulevard that connects with the Souligny Avenue Exwy)

Western End: Papineau Street (A-720 western end)
