Activists for the Council of Canadian Delta/Richmond chapter say replacing the Massey Tunnel will not fix traffic congestion -- increasing transit capacity will.
The group is rallying outside a Ministry of Transportation open house in Delta today.
Eric Doherty with the council says by adding more buses through the tunnel -- bottle necks will not only lessen but carbon emissions would decrease.
"We have a climate crisis and we have to reduce emission. We really don't have a choice, places like Delta are going to be in severe danger of flooding in the future as the sea levels rise up to 5 meters."
Recently the province released five options for replacing or improving the tunnel.
All plans involve rebuilding or broadening the highway.
