The ferry ramp, i.e. the end of the road leading to the boarding dock for the Madonna – By-Comaw – Godfoot boat, took 2nd place. Citizens, exhausted by the breakdowns of the service because the naval route could not be included in this list, used this bit tactfully by naming the asphalt.

Provides CAA-Quebec Today its 6e Gift list In the 10 worst arteries in the province
This year, the province’s worst roads are new to the CAA – Quebec Schedule, mostly from the Quebec City area … including a river route!
This year, the Semin de la Grante-Ligne, located in Carrignan, Monterrey, won the gold medal, so to speak, according to the annual survey conducted by the CAA-Quebec, its 6e List of 10 worst roads in the province.
According to users of this road, it is considered an “obstacle” and it is not surprising that the condition of the road has deteriorated over the years.
Like all other arteries selected this year, this is the first time this route has been introduced.
It was followed by the ferry ramp de Madonna, the access curve for the controversial ferry crossing between Madonna and Cote-Nord, which was surprised to be added to the rankings following a popular movement aimed at condemning the many breaks in service and various ships. They followed each other.
This is the path of 3e-Rang-du-Big at the bronze medalist Rimaous Ski. Again, this is not surprising for residents and motorists in the area, who see the condition of cars deteriorating due to multiple cracks in the roadway.
Unlike Montreal, this is not the first time that four roads in the Quebec City region are entering the list.
Thus, R. Secnoriel, Boulevard de L’Ormeier, and Boulevard Jean-Dalலோn Oyster take fifth, seventh, and eighth place, respectively. In Lewis, Avenue Doniatta sits in the ninth row.
According to CAA-Quebec spokesman Nicholas Ryan, epidemiology may have played a role in this classification, which received fewer votes than in the past.
« [Avec le confinement] Many of those who made the annoying daily commute stayed at home and we can assume they did not take the time to vote on stage, ”he explains.
In addition, the epidemic led citizens to make more local trips and go to the grocery store or school, which may have given prominence to smaller roads.
The poor condition of municipal roads, among other things, is explained by the fact that a large portion of the cleaning infrastructure is buried under the roads, argues Guy Dore, a recently retired professor from the Faculty of Civil Engineering at Laval University.
“It is difficult to compare municipal and provincial networks. Powers are not equal. Roads [municipales] Are dug frequently, and every time you dig you can not do it again better because you have created a poorly constructed area […] So more bumps, more holes, more cracks. ” Tore explains.
“Municipal budgets are not the equivalent of government budgets, and underscores Michael Wylancourt, professor of Ecole de Technology Superior and pavement design and rehabilitation specialist. “
