January 28th, 2016 - 11:51am
Brian Masse MP (Windsor West) has written the consortiums short listed through the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process on the merits of including cyclist and pedestrian access into their design for the Gordie Howe International Bridge.
In his letter Masse points to the economic and human health benefits for the Windsor-Detroit border region as a whole. In addition he points out that given the notoriety of this project, building this bridge with a multi-modal focus would dramatically enhance the portfolio of the companies involved in its construction.
“This is a transformative project for our community and our region in addition to the entire North American continent. I have asked the consortiums to include cycle and pedestrian infrastructure into their design proposals in order to elevate this bridge’s functionality beyond a simple tool of the economy into a quality of life improving asset. “ Masse said.
