Meeting with Honourable Claire Trevena Re: George Massey Tunnel Replacement Project

Aug 04, 2017

Yesterday afternoon, Mayor Lois E. Jackson, Chief Administrative Officer George V. Harvie, and Chief Constable Neil Dubord met with the Honourable Claire Trevena, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, to discuss the George Massey Tunnel Replacement Project. It was a productive meeting, with very good discussion on the traffic congestion, transit improvements, and public safety issues that the region is facing. The Minister received a briefing document outlining the project, and she committed to review the file in great detail.

Delta looks forward to further dialogue on the project with Minister Trevena, as we continue to advocate for the replacement of the George Massey Tunnel.

A Council Report regarding Delta’s recommendations and a full briefing on presentations to the Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, Mayors' Council on Regional Transportation, and the Metro Vancouver Board will be discussed at the August 14 Regular Meeting of Delta Council.
