New sidewalk in the works for Cadboro Bay Road

Project will construct two-metre wide sidewalk along the south side of Cadboro Bay Road

The District of Saanich plans to install a new sidewalk on the south side of Cadboro Bay Road

The District of Saanich is moving ahead with plans for a sidewalk improvement project on the south side of Cadboro Bay Road near Cadboro Bay Village as well as on Penrhyn Street.

“The works will improve pedestrian accessibility within the village area and towards Gyro Park. The works will also improve cycling accessibility as this portion of Cadboro Bay Road is identified as a Local Connector/Touring Route on the district’s Bikeway Network,” according to a report from project manager Ivan Leung.

Construction is expected to begin late this year or early in 2016.

The project consists of the construction of a two-metre wide concrete sidewalk along the south side of Cadboro Bay Road, between Sinclair Road and Penrhyn Street, as well as a two-metre wide asphalt sidewalk on the south side of Cadboro Bay Road extending about 70 metres east of Penrhyn.

The existing bus stop would be moved east of the Penrhyn Street intersection where a bus shelter would be installed. A 1.8-metre wide sidewalk would be installed on the south side of Penrhyn Street, connecting the existing sidewalk to the Gyro Park access.
