Bye bye tunnel, hello bridge
Great article and thank you to Carol Day for her words of wisdom. However, the Massey Tunnel replacement —“The Bridge”—is already mandated, decided, and a go, thus, allowing for much larger ships to navigate and ply up/down river.
Currently, the Massey sits too high and currently, limits the ship size capability and we are the west end shipping door for the country.
The bridge replacement affords a much deeper Fraser River Channel for the likes of Panamax size ships—so named for the maximum allowable sized ships plying the Panama Canal.
Accessible/developable shipping industrial land in the Lower Mainland is no longer available and/or at a premium and the inner harbour is full. The bridge will open up many acres of industrial land.
