Richmond City Council will vote today on a staff report to suspend the George Massey Tunnel Replacement Project.
The report recommends the premier be urged to stop all current work associated with the project, including the relocation of the BC Hydro transmission lines, pending a comprehensive review and analysis of alternative options.
In addition, it proposes two alternate options for twinning the existing tunnel for addressing current traffic congestion at the South Fraser crossing.
The report will be considered at a special meeting of council’s general purposes committee at 4 p.m. at Richmond City Hall.
Subject to committee support, the report would then go to the regular council meeting for ratification tonight at 7 p.m.
