Massey Tunnel makes worst roads in B.C. list for second year in a row
While it may not come as a surprise to commuters from Ladner and Tsawwassen, the George Massey Tunnel has been voted as one of the top 10 worst roads in B.C. for the second year running.
According to a poll conducted by BCAA, the tunnel was ranked eighth on the top 10 list of worst roads in the province for 2012.
Congestion was listed as the main problem by those responding to the poll with a whopping 90 per cent citing the daily bumper-to-bumper crawl commuters make in both directions.
In BCAA's poll last year, the "tube", which opened to traffic in 1959, ranked 10th among respondents with congestion again the main issue.
Topping the worst roads list in 2012 was Westside Road in Kelowna which was cited for potholes and crumbling pavement.
The poll was conducted from April 2-23 and according to BCAA close to 3,500 motorists, pedestrians and cyclists took part in the second 'Worst Roads' Campaign.
The results of the poll will be shared with municipalities and the provincial Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.
