The George Massey Tunnel replacement project (bridge or expanded tunnel) is too far off to help with the current traffic situation, which has been torture for drivers and bad for the environment.
The bottom line is we need to change behaviour patterns now because there are simply too many vehicles for the current infrastructure throughout the Lower Mainland.
Why not fund free public transit to get cars off the road? If enough people made the switch, the domino effect could be a paradigm shift.
A trial period of a year should be sufficient to see if it makes a significant difference that could help identify the infrastructure needed for the future. It’s a solution for both the short- and long-term. Money well spent, I think.
