VANCOUVER, B.C. — The B.C. Automobile Association (BCAA) says that its extensive research indicates people are warming up to the notion of toll roads in the province.

A number of polls carried out by the association, show a trend of increasing acceptance for the idea of toll roads and toll bridges, according to BCAA spokesman, John Ratel.

Ratel says most respondents want limits on the amount charged and want to be ensured their money is going towards highway maintenance and safety.

TransLink is studying the viability of a toll bridge spanning the Fraser River, and during public consultations the regional transportation agency claims to have support for the project.
