Tolls gone from Coquihalla
by Castanet Staff - Story: 42058
Sep 26, 2008 / 12:10 pm

Tolls on the Coquihalla Highway will be removed immediately, Premier Gordon Campbell announced today during his annual address to the Union of B.C. Municipalities.

"The Coquihalla Highway opened British Columbia's Interior like never before, generating economic opportunities and fostering the tremendous growth of communities," says Premier Campbell.

"Former Premier Bill Bennett had a vision for a highway that would see our province reach its full economic potential. It has succeeded beyond anyone's expectations and has become the foundation for a transportation network that has opened up Canada's Pacific Gateway to North America and the rest of the world. Today's announcement marks the next milestone in that legacy."

The highway officially opened on May 16, 1986, at the dawn of Expo 86. The first phase, from Hope to Merritt, opened on that day. Phase 2, from Merritt to Kamloops, was completed on Sept. 4, 1987 and the final phase, the Coquihalla Connector from Merritt to Kelowna, was completed Oct. 1, 1990.

The total capital cost of the three phases was $848 million. Current annual revenue collected by the tolls is approximately $57 million. The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure anticipates that revenues collected from the tolls since its opening will have effectively offset those total capital costs by next month.

"Removing the tolls will mean literally hundreds of dollars annually in the pockets of British Columbians who regularly use the highway," says Premier Campbell.

"It will also mean thousands of dollars in annual saving for truckers who account for 20 per cent of highway traffic along the corridor but pay more than half of the total toll revenue."

Approximately 3.4 million trips are completed across the Coquihalla Highway each year in British Columbia. In 2007, 2.7 million passenger vehicles and 700,000 commercial trucks crossed the corridor.

"In 2003, our government passed a policy clearly stating that any infrastructure financed by toll revenue must see the tolls removed upon recovery of construction costs," says Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Kevin Falcon.

"This milestone marks an important time in our province's history as we continue to open up our transportation networks with projects such as the $3-billion Gateway Project, the Kicking Horse Canyon, the Cariboo Connector four-laning, the William R. Bennett Bridge and port and airport expansions."

glad the provincial government is keeping a promise but i'd rather pay a toll if it means better maintenance, especially snow clearing in the winter.

How many weeks does it take london drugs to fix/replace a dvd player? Well apparently a long fu>king time. Since august 22nd to be exact. 6 weeks! and yesterday I was told I need to wait another 7-14days I told the manager I wanted the next model up or something comparable... but mine only displays 1080p and the model they have displays 1080i but I cant have it because its not the "same unit" I only ever got to watch 2 movies on it before it crapped out, and I've been waiting twice as long as I owned it for "warranty". ORIGINALLY I was told it would talk 3 days for it to be fixed. He was going to send it to toshiba and they always send back new units. So I waited a week and checked in and I was told to call toshiba to deal with it. I called toshiba and they never recieved it so back to the store. Turns out the dvd player never left the store in the 1st place... what a bunch of bullshitting around for something thats only worth $150 As the story goes on... they have to bring in another from a different store, but first it needs to be shipped to there warehouse and than to the kelowna store. I've been waiting for almost 2 weeks and the store that has the unit still has not shipped it out.

thats when you go back to the same store. buy the same player, return the old defective one with the new recipt, get your money back and you got a brand new player.

1080p vs 1080i on an upconverting DVD player is a pointless debate. 720p would look the same
