Bridge to Newcastle Island a timely proposal

To the Editor,

Re: Newcastle bridge floated, Nov. 29.

Hurrah for a bridge to Newcastle Island.

Jim Routledge is right – Newcastle Island is an untapped economic driver in Nanaimo, as the tastes of our visitors and local people are changing from pub lovers to nature lovers.

Not everyone can spare the time and cost that it takes when using the ferry, but most of us can stroll, jog, walk over a bridge to enjoy this natural gem right in front of our doors.

A cantilevered spar cable-styled bridge that opens to allow marine traffic through is of course the best answer. The sooner we build it, the better.
