Residents of Route des Outaouais (Route 344) in the Greece’s Point area of Brownsburg-Chatham continue to seek improvements to speed enforcement and road safety through the community. 

On October 5, Brownsburg-Chatham council approved a resolution requesting the Ministère des transports du Québec (MTQ) put further measures in place to reduce speed and protect the safety of residents. The resolution also requested that Argenteuil member of the National Assembly Agnes Grondin support the municipality’s call for improved safety measures. 

According to Brownsburg-Chatham Director-General Jean-François Brunet, those additional measures replacing the present single, solid no passing zone line with a double, solid line for better visibility, extending the existing 50 kilometres per hour zone west to the Place de la Belle Vue intersection, increased speed limit signage, and signage advising motorcyclists to reduce noise. Electronic speed radar signage has already been installed along Route 344 in Greece’s Point. 

Brunet said consideration is also being given to reducing the speed limit to 40 kilometres per hour in part of the area. 

Greece’s Point residents first requested increased speed enforcement and safety measures along the road in October 2020. Meetings have also been held between the residents, the municipality, the MTQ, and the Sûreté du Québec.
