Construction of a temporary ramp for the new ferry Villa de Teror at Cap-aux-Meules wharf

The project consists of the construction of a new ramp to allow the arrival of the new ferry at the commercial port of Cap-aux-Meules in the Magdalen Islands. The existing ramp will be dismantled, along with the concrete lifting towers. The new temporary structure will consist of a fixed ramp seated either on steel sheet pile walls that form a caisson with a concrete or metal deck on top, or piles that would support a concrete or metal deck.
