Who says the tunnel has to be underground?
And you think a floating tunnel is feasible how?
Also consider that the technology is not proven, and the longest and ONLY floating tunnel in the world is in China and it's barely 100-metres long.
One big storm, and a floating tunnel in the Strait of Georgia would be a write-off. Again, don't forget about the maximum depth of the Strait either:
But really, the main issue is cost. If we ever have $30-billion to spend, I'd rather see it spent on other things.
