2013: A Year in Preview – Pat Bay/Sayward intersection

Changes are coming to one of Saanich’s most notoriously dangerous intersections.

Changes are coming to one of Saanich’s most notoriously dangerous intersections.

The Ministry of Transportation says upgrades to the infrastructure on the Pat Bay Highway, near Sayward Road, are expected to be completed by fall 2013.

By spring of next year, a right-turning deceleration lane onto Sayward, a bus stop pullout south of Sayward, and a northbound acceleration lane from Sayward will be built. There will also be a transit priority queue lane installed.

As well, a left turn lane for west-facing Sayward drivers will be built.

Already installed this past summer was a flashing congestion ahead sign, just south of Cordova Bay Road, alerting northbound travellers of traffic at the busy intersection.

Pat Bay and Sayward is one of the most dangerous intersections in the province, having seen more than 338 crashes since 2007.

A spokesperson with MoT says the roadwork will go to tender in the spring.
