Routing: A-30 begins at A-40 immediately west of the Montreal Island at Vaudreuil.  A-540 follows the former alignment southerly (posted easterly) from A-40 to A-20 and beyond.  In 2012, a new Saint Lawrence River bridge opened to traffic carrying A-30 to the South Shore where it will remain.  On the south shore, A-30 curves easterly, beyond the A-530 interchange and crosses the Beauharnois Canal via a new high-level bridge that also opened to traffic in late 2012.  The highway passes to the south of the Kahnawake Mohawk Reservation and begins a northeastern trajectory beyond its interchange with A-15.  A-30 continues this northeastern trajectory around Longueil  following the South Shore of the Saint Lawrence River to Sorel-Tracy.  The western (and longer) segment of A-30 terminates just east of the high level Richelieu River bridge in Sorel-Tracy.  An additional segment of A-30 begins easterly from the Route 132 interchange immediately west of the A-55 cloverleaf in Bécancour.  This section is an autoroute in name only, as it is principally a two lane, at-grade roadway.  This section of A-30 ends at the Gentilly River bridge just east of Bécancour.
