Toronto - Toronto mayoral candidate Rocco Rossi delivered a press conference to discuss his latest vision for the city if elected mayor, which is to bring 21st century bridge replacement technology.
One of the trailing candidates in the Toronto race for mayor, Rossi said he's given the voting public another reason to vote for him on Oct. 25: Rapid bridge replacement technology, where a bridge is constructed in an off-site location and then later replaces the deteriorating bridge.
During a Wednesday morning press conference in the western part of downtown Toronto at the Jameson Avenue bridge, Rossi announced his new vision for transportation in this city where bridges will be done faster and will cause less disruption for drivers and residents.
“As with my Toronto Tunnel, I will take full advantage of new technology to get the job done faster and with less disruption, said Rossi to reporters. “We've got eleven major bridge projects coming up and we can't afford to use anything but the latest technology.”
Rossi went onto criticize City Hall’s “foot-dragging” and blasted the Jameson Avenue bridge project, which is not to be completed until November next year.
“They have said that we don't need to dream big for Toronto, we just need to manage it. The problem is that they have not even been competent managers.”
