The tunnel will bypass one exposed sea lane where over 100 ships have perished, and even the newer larger freighters and cruise ships can experience trouble. They can all use the ships tunnel when finished in a few years.

I have written about this project before, and will again. On the Sunshine Coast we live as we if it was an Island, but we are part of the mainland BC. And we have no road connection. What is wrong ?
To build a road to Vancouver and / or Squamish is just a matter of a commitment, and some tunnels. To build tunnels via Bowen, Gambier is just as easy, as a matter of fact, we should build both, for many reason.
Civic boosters at Stad on Norway’s northwest coast have long promoted the idea of a building a tunnel for ships, so they could avoid stormy seas around the West Cape. They’re not giving up. PHOTO: skipstunnel.no
