The region plans to open the second stage of the Vanier Parkway from the Queensway to McArthur Road by Oct. 31- Regional transportation planner Noel Orr announced the date Wednesday at a regional transportation committee meeting.

Although some Overbrook residents have opposed the plan since it was first announced, transportation officials have received phone calls from people anxious to know when the Overbrook section of the parkway will open. Although the section has been ready for some weeks, Orr said the department has been waiting for construction work on Coventry Road to be completed. Coventry, which links the Queensway and St. Laurent Boulevard, will be an access route for trucks. Trucks are not allowed on the parkway.

Regional Chairman Andy Haydon is pleased about the opening of the Overbrook section of the parkway. "We're two-thirds of the way there."
