The Province, TransLink and municipal funding partners will study the technical feasibility of a potential rapid-transit crossing across the Burrard Inlet to the North Shore.
Claire Trevena, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure says the feasibility study will explore potential solutions that help people move around more easily.
Bowinn Ma, MLA for North Vancouver-Lonsdale says over the years, the high cost of housing has forced people to move further from the places they work, resulting in longer commutes and serious traffic issues.
The feasibility study will consider the compatibility of a transit crossing with existing and future land use, as well as the potential for affordable housing as part of its evaluation metrics.
