At 4pm today, July 24th, Richmond City Council will consider a report stating the Premier should suspend work on the Massey Tunnel Replacement Bridge.

The report argues that all work on the Massey Tunnel Replacement Project, as well as the relocation of BC Hydro Transmission lines, should be reconsidered. It states that the project requires a more comprehensive review and analysis prior to any further efforts.


Moreover, the document suggests alternative options for twinning the existing tunnel as potential, more suitable options concerning the traffic congestion issues.

Richmond Council’s General Purposes Committee will decide on how to proceed with this complex issue today. You can visit the report for the assembly here.
