A Fixed Link

A fixed link, fixed crossing, or bridge–tunnel is a persistent, unbroken road or rail connection across water that uses some combination of bridges, tunnels, and causeways and does not involve intermittent connections such as drawbridges or ferries.[1]

The Confederation Bridge was commonly referred to as “The Fixed Link” by residents of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island prior to its official naming.
