#1519: Tunnel for traffic: Blanchet comments
From: Max Blanchet <MaxBlanchet@worldnet.att.net>
The solution to the La Boule road mess is a new
I would propose a tunnel that would link the Boutillier corner
to the Northern side of the mountain where it would tie
into a "boulevard périphérique" that would hug the flancs of
the mountain and link the Canapé Vert road to Carrrefour.
A toll would be charged to users of the tunnel and the big,
bad, ugly sand trucks kept out. The toll would be collected
double in one direction only as is done on SF Bay Area
bridges to ease the flow of traffic.
Another thought: as one stands in Fermath and looks to the
West, there is that huge "gorge" and then the smooth mountain side.
A new road along that mountain side and almost parallel to the Kenskoff
road might be built there. It would end up in Kenskoff and at my
proposed tunnel entrance. This would open up a whole new area
The gorge itself would be broken by a series of mini dams behind
which new reservoirs would be created that would serve the P--au-P
metropolitan area. Likewise, the dams could be sites for low-head
hydroelectric power plants that would also serve P-au-P.
As for privatization, I am a bit skeptical.
Might be worth a try though!
