Southern Terminus: A-20 interchange west of Dorion.

Northern Terminus: A-40 interchange just west of Pont de I'Ile aux Tourtes

Regions: MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges

Routing: A-540 is a very short freeway that links A-20 to A-40 in western Montreal.  It is particularly useful for vehicles looking to avoid A-20's arterial section through Dorion.  In the future, A-540 will be incorporated into A-30's extension.

Pictures on this page are arranged in order from south to north.  A-540 North photos are left-aligned in the last column, while A-540 South photos are right-aligned.  Center-line pictures are centered within the last column.

Advanced signage denoting the A-40 interchange.  Northbound A-540 defaults onto the Montreal-bound lanes of A-40.  Travelers bound westerly towards Ottawa and Ontario's Highway 417 must exit to the right following a long one horseshoe shaped ramp.

Southerly view of the advanced diagramatic sign that is partially obstructed by a railway overpass.  Prior to the completion of Autoroute 30, traffic heading southerly along A-540 simply rounds a long bend and becomes traffic heading westbound along A-20.  Traffic bound towards Dorion and Montreal along A-20 east must navigate a sharp loop ramp to complete their journey.
