The Viau Terminal – Lot 2 expansion is to date the largest civil engineering project awarded by the Port of Montréal. This project consisted of the following :

- Expansion of the container terminal
- Construction of running girders for two new ‘’STS’’ mega-cranes
- Construction of a new intermodal terminal
- Expansion of the Viterra railway terminal
- Repairs to existing dock wall
- Construction of new marine fenders

In addition, Roxboro executed a major environmental soil rehabilitation project of over 20,000 tons of S/S (stabilization/solidification), which included reusing as subbase, existing contaminated soils, mixed with stone and concrete.

Works were completed within a particularly tight schedule (over $25 M of works in 6 months) and very specific phasing to not hinder ongoing terminal activity.


Statistics:
• Decontamination = > 120,000 tons
• Dynamic compaction = 17,000 m²
• Sewers / aqueduct / drainage = > 6 km of conduits
• Electricity
• Railroad works
• Roller-compacted concrete (RCC), granular foundation, paving, etc.
