All year long, Montréal works to keep streets, lanes and sidewalks clean. Thanks to regular maintenance and preventive operations, people can move around Montréal in total safety. Our teams also react quickly when you report a problem in the street.
Cleanliness, repair and prevention
The city is constantly working to maintain good traffic conditions and a clean environment for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.
Beyond the regular maintenance of roads and sidewalks, Montréal carries out preventive work to maintain the quality of its equipment, prolong its life and prevent damages. We also look after repairing faulty facilities, such as burnt-out traffic lights and damaged urban furnishings.
Cleanliness of streets
Sweeping away dead leaves in the fall, clearing snow in the winter, collecting garbage after cultural and sporting events… street cleaning is a priority in any season. It changes based on weather conditions, and also for various public events.
Maintenance is particularly intense in the spring. As soon as conditions permit, the streets, alleyways and sidewalks are cleaned to get rid of winter abrasives and debris. Spring is also the ideal time to fill potholes in the pavement, which form during the cold season. Many pieces of equipment, such as sweeper and vacuum trucks, are used to clean up public routes.
Parking during street cleaning
Check the signage before parking your vehicle in the street! Parking is prohibited at certain times of the year to allow for safe passage of the street sweepers.
