Truckers Get No Relief from Port Mann Bridge Tolls
Posted: August 1, 2014
SURREY, BC— Truckers using the Port Mann Bridge won’t be offered any new relief from tolls other than the half-price evenings and overnight discount they already have, the B.C. provincial government decided.
Transportation Investment Corp. officials were considering offering truckers a monthly pass for unlimited use at a flat rate like the one offered to regular cars, but nope, that won’t happen.
But Johnson said the bridge is already saving trucks going between Langley and Vancouver 30 minutes in travel time and that the time saving will go up to an hour when the new lanes west of the bridge open around Christmas.
Currently, the bridge is one of the most heavily traveled truck routes in Western Canada, carrying about 10,000 trucks each day as well as 117,000 other vehicles.
