Construction continues at the intersection of Cedar Hill Cross Road and Shelbourne Street. Utility infrastructure upgrades have been ongoing there since May, including the replacement of wood stave drains. The last of the wooden pipes are currently being removed from Saanich’s sewer and water systems in a few areas and replaced with concrete or PVC piping. Saanich is also replacing sections of a 150mm diameter asbestos cement water main between Shelbourne Street and Gordon Head Road. The project is budgeted at $870,000 for water pipes, $440,000 for storm drains and $100,000 to repave the area.
