The '''A-40''', known as ''Autoroute 40'' and officially named ''Autoroute Félix-Leclerc'' and ''Autoroute de la Rive-Nord'' runs on one stretch from the border of [[Ontario]] to the West and finishes just East of [[Quebec city]]. The A-40 highway continues its path into [[Ontario]] as the [[H-417 (Ontarion)|H-417]], which goes towards [[Ottawa]], the provincial border in Rigaud. It also runs parallel to the St-Lawrence River on its northern bank crossing the main urban areas on [[Montreal Metropolitan|Montreal]] Island, [[Trois-Rivières]] before finally reaching [[Quebec city]] where the highway finally merge with the National Route 138 continuing further East.
The A-40 is part of the [[Transcanadian Highway]] between [[Montreal]] and the [[Ontario|ontarian]] border.
=== Section West - [[Ontario]] border and [[Montreal Metropolitan]] ===
In [[Montreal Metropolitan]], the A-40 runs in the northern part of the [[Montreal]] island and is known as ''Autoroute Metropolitaine'' until it reaches the St-Lawrence North Shore at the 'Charles-De-Gaulle Bridge' in Repentigny. The A-40 highway also includes two periphical By-Pass branches meant to avoid the urban traffic of downtown [[Montreal]] and facilitate the transport towards the northern regions of [[Laurentides/Lanaudières]]. From Repentigny, the A-440 and the A-640 aim to By-Pass [[Montreal]] Island, the A-440 goes through and finishes in [[Laval]] while the A-640 follows the Northern shore before finishing in the surrounding of Oka. Both connects with the [[A-13 (Quebec)|A-13]] that runs North-South back to the main A-40 on Montreal Island and the [[A-15 (Quebec)|A-15]] which also goes further north.
