Saanich seeks cycle track feedback

District of Saanich staff looking into proposed Lochside Trail extension

Saanich engineering staff will be in the field this week seeking public feedback for a proposed cycle track extension to the Lochside Trail.

District of Saanich staff are inviting cyclists, pedestrians and motorists to visit them at the Borden Street and McKenzie Avenue intersection on Thursday from 3 to 6 p.m. and again Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

They’ll have a large poster of the proposed design and are ready to chat about the concept.

“This is a great opportunity for people to view the cycle track conceptual design and provide feedback on the suggested improvements to biking, walking and driving in the corridor before the design is finalized,” says Harley Machielse, director of engineering. “We want to make sure we are meeting the needs of citizens using this busy route by building a cycle track that is a safe and enjoyable asset to our community.”

The Borden/McKenzie cycle track design includes a separated bi-directional protected cycle track on Borden from the McKenzie  intersection to Cedar Hill Cross Road, then down Cedar Hill Cross Road to the Lochside Trail.

It also suggests relocating the sidewalk on Borden and installing new sidewalks on Cedar Hill Cross, while reconfiguring the Borden and Cedar Hill Cross intersection (for visibility and safety), and other changes.

Residents can also visit saanich.ca/services/engineering/projects/index.html to provide feedback or by emailing engineering@saanich.ca with “Borden McKenzie” in the subject line.
