Autoroute 30 (or A-30, also known in French as Autoroute de l'Acier ["Steel Expressway"] ) is an incomplete superhighway in Quebec, Canada.

There are four segments currently open for travel:

#An 8.3 km bypass of Salaberry-de-Valleyfield.
#A 12.5 km bypass of Châteauguay and the Kahnawake Reserve.
#An 83.6 km segment from south of Montreal to Sorel-Tracy.
#An 18.3 km super two segment in Bécancour, starting from Route 132 immediately west from a cloverleaf at Autoroute 55 (near Laviolette Bridge, south of Trois-Rivières). The segment proceeds east to the Industrial Park and Port of Bécancour.

A-30 serves as a bypass highway for the city of Montreal. It is located on the South Shore of the St. Lawrence River. When completed, it will allow vehicles traveling along Autoroute 20 to bypass Montreal from Vaudreuil-Dorion, Quebec and then return to the 20 in Boucherville, via Autoroute 10/Autoroute 15.

The original section of Autoroute 30 linked Sorel to Autoroute 20. Later, in 1982, it was extended to Autoroute 10 in Brossard and then towards Autoroute 15.

Autoroute 30 extension project

At the end of 2005, construction on the portion between Candiac and Châteauguay had begun.

The completion of the Montreal Bypass is set for 2010. [http://www.autoroute30.qc.ca/documents/6/CahierLaPresse.pdf] Autoroute 30 will be rerouted to the existing junction of Autoroute 20 and Autoroute 540.

The existing A-30 road into Salaberry-de-Valleyfield west of a new junction with Autoroute 30 will be renamed Autoroute 530.

The westernmost portion will be financed in a joint partnership between the public and private sector, while other sections will be funded only by the provincial government.
