What would you like to see happen with the current Deas Tunnel crossing?


Apparently, a crossing to replace the George Massey Tunnel remains a high priority for our current provincial government and a business case on the best options will be ready next year.

The government goes so far as to say they are not studying the issue anymore but are now just looking at a business plan with 3 options and they hope to decide what the best option is.

Once again the provincial government will work actively with the mayors of the region to find a solution that makes the most sense. A little bit of deja vu???

The previously confirmed 10-lane bridge project won't be moving ahead but options such as a 6 or 8 lane bridge or even an 8 lane tunnel might work. The existing tunnel could even play a part in the solution.

In the meantime, there will be interim upgrades to the existing tunnel and road system at the cost of $40 million.

How's that for responsibly managing our tax dollars?
