A couple of these from North Vancouver to downtown, and one from Deep Cove eastward would be nice. These could replace many ferries in BC.

Floating bridges around the world

Simple solution are often the best, no need for two Golden Gate bridges over Anvil Island.

The causeway at a Porteau Cove Crossing can be as simple as this.

The narrow crossing of the deep sea shipping lane can be a tunnel, a conrete pipe or a bridge.

George says: A view of a Marine Chart shows this is the narrowest and most shallow place for a crossing of Howe Sound.

Massey tunnel bridge – A Fixed Link forever

If the replacement bridge for the Massey Tunnel is not on solid foundation, take a break and build the Fixed Link first!

Ferries are used where one can not build a Fixed Link.

The Sunshine Coast can be connected, and that Link will be used many many years after a Ferry is scrap metal or better, an artificial reef.
