Armada Posted September 21, 2015 Share Posted September 21, 2015 The provincial government has announced that it is studying the feasibility of a fixed link between the Sunshine Coast and Metro Vancouver that would replace the existing B.C. Ferries services. The routes that are being considered include a direct bridge connection across Howe Sound from the Sea to Sky Highway south of Squamish to an overland highway route further north around Jervis Inlet. The government says a Request for Proposals (RFP) will be issued to contract a private firm to study the cost and benefits of various fixed route options against the existing ferry services. “We’ve heard from stakeholders from Powell River to the Sunshine Coast that highway access is important for attracting tourism and investment,” said B.C. Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Todd Stone in a statement. “Over the coming months, we’ll look at the opportunities available and see how the costs and benefits stack up against the existing transportation options.” This is one of the options they are considering: More in the article, including different options. http://www.vancitybuzz.com/2015/09/sunshine-coast-bridge-metro-vancouver/ I for one support this. This would eliminate the cost of the ferry. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
