I looks like we’ll have to wait some time – say, a few years – before anything is done about the daily disaster we call the Massey Tunnel.
Other municipalities are enjoying the billions being spent on their transport infrastructure while White Rock clearly doesn’t register on the NDP radar.
What I’d like to know is when the people responsible for the approach and exit to the tunnel – specifically, from the north Richmond/Steveston side – will repair the roads.
Coming into the tunnel from that side are several nasty breaks in the road. Two years ago, my car drove through one of the pot holes and it literally destroyed my front wheel. It was only a stroke of luck that I kept going and managed to exit the tunnel safely before surveying the damage.
The ICBC claim went back and forth between Richmond and the road contractor until I received a very legalese release telling me that I was responsible for the $1,000 damage to my car. Thanks.
The same could also be said for the exit of the tunnel at that north end.
Just as you’re coming out, there’s a few water leaks on the road that will spray your car with dirty water, occasionally causing visibility problems. There’s no doubt that any incident or accident here would be blamed on the driver.
I mean, someone is supposed to look after the road but no one said it had to be easily or clearly navigated. If the NDP can’t come up with fresh ideas on how to fix the tunnel, the least they could do would be to make sure the road is in decent condition.
