A bridge over the shipping lane
Or a concrete pipe under the narrow shipping lane
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.
Sunshine Coast Connector – A Fixed Link – from Mainland to mainland
Ferries are no option !
Robert says: do you wanna pay rent(Ferry) forever or do you want to pay off a mortgage(fixed link)…..?And be done with it.!
300 have voted on this blog, 278 prefere a Fixed Link, 22 prefere to use the ferries.
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.
A long bridge and 3 long tunnels
This will provide ferry free connections for 3 200 people!
The Sunshine Coast populations of Gibsons, Sechelt, Pender Harbour, and Powell River still landlocked, and part of the mainland!
In addition Vancouver Island connection via Comox Ferry are then only one ferry ride away in stead of three! Build a Fixed Link now! Benefits to all of BC.
