Evolo Condos in Montreal
The transport minister said Thursday that we’ll have a Champlain Bridge replacement by 2020 but the current talk is about a temporary causeway to Nuns’ Island by 2015, itself to cost $100 million.
Bert, Mathieu, and Bill Binns are discussing. Toggle Comments
Nothing described as “temporary” should cost 100 Million Dollars. This is just awful planning and incompetence at it’s worst. The article says “He said $100 million is a preliminary estimate.” – Translation = “150 to 200 million if everything goes smoothly”
What do you suggest? That we buy back buildings on Nun’s Island to destroy them and change the path where the brigde is going? This would cost much more than 100M$. The new bridge must go where the old one already is and we have to destroy the old one while still allowing cars to travel. It is complicated and expensive.
Maybe all the back-filll needed can be come from a Metro extension to Anjou? (or the west island, or Laval, or longueuil, or whatever your preference is.
I do agree however, that the build-only-to-unbuild does not make a lot of sense. Add to that, the stretch of road just north of there is going to be rebuilt also.
Eh, if everyone was as smart as you and I, we would be so well off….
