Saanich seeking input on Shelbourne design

Open houses set for Saturday at Gordon Head Rec Centre and Monday at Doncaster elementary school

  • Sep. 28, 2016 3:00 p.m.

Saanich wants to hear from residents on a new design option for the future of Shelbourne Street.

Earlier this year, two options for short-term mobility improvements on Shelbourne Street were presented for public review. Based on feedback received, a refined option has been developed to address key issues identified by the community.

The new design includes high-quality bike facilities for the entire street, including physical separation from vehicle traffic for more than half of the route. The design also highlights pedestrian improvements with 2.3 kilometres of upgraded sidewalks, as well as improvements to transit waiting areas and improved left-turn access for many locations.

The public can learn more about the new design option during a pair of open houses: Saturday from 2 to 6 p.m. at Gordon Head Recreation Centre, and Monday from 7 to 9 p.m. at Doncaster elementary school.
