Welcome to the George Massey Tunnel Replacement Project engagement website.
The purpose of this website is to provide you with information about the Project and give you an opportunity to provide input and share your thoughts, at key points throughout the Project.
Phase 3 of the consultation is now complete and results of feedback are being compiled; this phase was a review of the Project Definition Report and took place between December 16, 2015 and January 28, 2016. More than 1,000 people provided input over the six-week consultation period through open houses, stakeholder meetings and the feedback form. This feedback will be considered, along with that of others as well as technical and financial information, in finalizing the Project scope, cost and funding plan.
The B.C. Environmental Assessment Office continues to accept comments for the EAO process until February 15, 2016.
The George Massey Tunnel is a key component of the regional and provincial transportation system, carrying an average of 80,000 vehicles each day. The Project includes a new bridge and related Highway 99 improvements between Bridgeport Road in Richmond and Highway 91 in Delta, dedicated transit/HOV lanes and a multiuse pathway for cyclists and pedestrians across the new bridge. The Province plans to fund the Project at least in part with user tolls. Funding partnerships are also being explored. Subject to environmental review, construction is expected to begin in 2017, with the new bridge completed by 2022.
