====''Autoroute 540 ([[Monteregie]])''====
Short Connector between the A-40 and the [[A-20 (Quebec)|A-20]] west of [[Montreal Metropolitan]]
=== Section Centre [[Trois-Rivieres]] ===
====In [[Lanaudière]] and [[Mauricie]] Regions====
In [[Trois-Rivières]], the By-Pass project was never built. Therefore, the highway runs directly into downtown and requires that you overlap onto the [[A-55 (Quebec)|A-55]] for a few km on the western part of the city. Note that the southern junction between the A-40 and [[A-55 (Quebec)|A-55]] would be a dangerous hitching spot, the northern junction (leading to [[Montreal]] westbound) would even enable you to hitch directly on the highway viaduc itself. The distance to travel on the [[A-55 (Quebec)|A-55]] is about 4km.
=== Section East [[Greater Quebec|Greater Quebec Region]] ===
====In [[Greater Quebec|Greater Quebec Region]]====
In [[Quebec city]], the A-40 (known as 'Autoroute de la Capitale') act as a By-Pass north of the city while the A-440 (known as 'Boulevard Charest') goes directly into downtown. Both the A-40 and A-440 terminates in the vicinity of [[Quebec city]] crossing the path of the [[A-73 (Quebec)|A-73]] (northwards to [[Chicoutimi]] and Southwards to [[Maine]]), to continue on a journey further East, you would have to follow the National Road [[Route 138 (Quebec)|138]] toward [[Charlevoix]]. West of Quebec city, in the region of [[Portneuf]], it could be feasible to hitch along the highway itself at some point.

*{{Senseless}} - Do not venture as pedestrian along this highway until the fast lane stops as it is narrowed boulevard without shoulder, designed as a urban race track and often used as such by commuters!!
*Local Hitch along this highway could lead you to 'Wendake' (The Huron Village) or to other northern suburbs if you need to in replacement of using the public transport
