Concordia responds to neighbours' complaints over construction at Loyola campus

April 21, 2010

Following complaints about truck traffic and a lack of safety as a new research facility is being built at Concordia University's Loyola campus, the university has made some tweaks in the operation. Concordia has spoken to the contractor about heavy trucks lumbering along quiet residential streets and the chaos caused by dump trucks backing into the construction site. A flagman will become a permanent fixture to stop traffic when the trucks are manoeuvring into place on the site. A Concordia spokesperson responded to an unsigned letter from some "concerned citizens" and says the school looked into the complaints and dealt with the issues it could control. Montreal Gazette
