NDP transportation critic says “BC on the Move” falls short
The NDP’s transportation critic says the province’s new 10-year transportation plan falls far short of what’s required.
BC on the Move is a $2.5 billion dollar strategy aimed at maintaining and replacing aging infrastructure, boosting the economy and improving safety.
It includes more than $800 million over the next three years dedicated to repairing highways, roads and bridges, and almost $1 billion to expand major highways.
But North Island MLA Claire Trevena says it doesn’t really sound like a 10-year plan.
Trevena says the amount of money being committed by the government is inadequate, considering the lack of infrastructure investments over the last few years.
Trevena says the plan barely mentions BC Ferries and there’s not much in it that will benefit Island residents.
