If they were to widen highway 99 and expand the crossing at the Massey tunnel, you can bet there would be a toll on it.
The Putello is getting replaced. You can bet there's a toll on it.
The toll revenue from either (and from the Port Mann) will easily cover not just the cost of the bridge but all the highway widening that's part of the project. In fact expect it to make a profit.
Even at existing traffic volumes the proposed 3 dollar tolls could fund multi billions of infrastructure. I am sure you could do the math if you want......
Ron, you keep ignoring the inconvinient fact that there ii the brand new SFPR without tolls, the sea to sky, highway 10 widening, highway 15 widening, the roberts bank overpasses, etc.... And with reduced tolls, how can you possibly expect them to cover not only the bridge but also all the widening from Vancouver to Langley?
And need I repeat that again, tolls do not cover social, health & environmental costs.
