Ten Mile Point traffic concerns continue

The Cadboro Bay Residents Association says 85 per cent of residents along Tudor Avenue would like to see the speed limit lowered.

The Cadboro Bay Residents Association says 85 per cent of residents along Tudor Avenue would like to see the speed limit lowered.

Led by president Elizabeth Borek, the association conducted a survey of 352 residents along the road in late summer and early fall.

It was an expansion of the group’s 2010 work when 96 per cent of 75 households polled along Tudor agreed that 50 km/h was too fast for cars.

“We think this represents a strong mandate for the district of Saanich to lower the limit,” Borek said.

“The results of the survey could not have been more clear.”

The group sent their results to Saanich’s transportation department in mid-November and are currently waiting for a response.

Since Tudor Avenue is classified as a collector road, it’s difficult to lower the speed limit, Saanich transportation manager Jim Hemstock told the News in a previous interview.
