They sure better have a thorough and thoughtful traffic management plan in place; I drove out to the west shore yesterday to p/u my wife from work at 4:45. She is working in temporary office space on Sooke Rd just past RRU, until their new seniors facility opens on Jacklin in November.

 

This is normally about a 20 minute drive from our place. She gets off at 5:30 - and yet I was still ten minutes late getting there due to the crazy traffic on Craigflower, especially at the Admirals Road intersection. Traffic at that light was backed up on Craigflower all the way back to Cooper Rd, which is the main entrance off Craigflower onto the Songhees First Nation. Fifty-five minutes to drive what normally takes me a third that time.

And make the current residents of Christie Point pay for it.

Any whining should be forwarded to the Town of View Royal and to  Corporation of Esquimalt for the destruction of Admirals Rd and Old Island Highway .

 

One lane and their so called traffic calming which should have been called traffic stopping.

It could only happen in Victoria where a secondary route of only 2 into the city is chewed up and spit out like they were.

^Wow! The guy that got upset about the twinning of the left turn lane onto Highway 1 was pandering to non locals is complaining about View Royal and Esquimalt not pandering to non locals?
