The provincial government says it’s ready to put up the money to study a road or bridge system to link the Sunshine Coast with the Sea to Sky corridor.

Several groups have pushed for a link in recent years, including the Third Crossing Society in Powell River, a former SCRD economic development officer, and the people behind the blog “West Howe Sound Road”.

Powell River Sunshine Coast MLA Nicholas Simons says the announcement caught him by surprise, but he also says interest in the idea is definitely out there

 

The Ministry is still waiting for delivery of a similar feasibility study on a fixed link between Gabriola and Vancouver Island.
