Monday morning’s Malahat Drive closure renewed calls for an alternate route between the capital region and rest of Vancouver Island.

There was a “minor impact” with a northbound pickup truck when a a rock fell into the southbound lanes, bounced across the median and through the northbound lanes before coming to rest on the shoulder.

Not three weeks ago a fatal single-vehicle crash closed the route for hours. In June analysts closed much of the highway after a fatal two-vehicle head-on collision.

Do we need an alternate route between the capital region and the rest of Vancouver Island?
