Billion dollar Bayers Road/102 project will destroy Halifax transit forever

Decisions made starting this month will determine the future livability of HRM.


The widening of Bayers Road is not just a bad idea, it's a horrific idea.

Quite literally, if the Bayers Road/102 widening project moves forward, it will utterly destroy any hope that HRM will ever have an effective transit system. It will cost us about a billion dollars for construction, then untold billions more to operate the thing, money exported right out the province, year after year after year, assuming we can afford it in the first place.

In short, the Bayers Road project is a make or break moment for the province of Nova Scotia and the city of Halifax and its suburbs. We either kill this project now and adopt sensible transportation policies, or we lose the possibility forever.
