With the road diets and curb plunking, that’s exactly what is happening. And if those aren’t the obstacles, bus stops will be situated where little centre islands exist or get built, meaning, you cannot pass a bus. It’s doing wonders for the oil industry.

Know it all.

Construction has begun on the interior of the new Provincial Distribution Centre in Colwood, which B.C. Transit said will support their growth over the next 25 years.

As B.C. Transit integrates Umo, NextRide and electric buses, the distribution centre will support the need for space too store technology parts and accommodate future inventory needs.

Under the management of Omicron Canada, the work will be confined to the inside of three warehouses at the Wildcat Industrial Complex on Allandale Road to ensure traffic and pedestrian safety.

Who's the "genius" who thought it was a good idea to dig up Island Hwy between 6mile to Burnside for SIX MONTHS during the day.  WHAT A NIGHTMARE.  Do this work at night!  GAS is $10 a friggin' gallon!!!  You are causing enormous traffic backups.  Ignoring emergency vehicle, persons with appointments, persons with continence issues.  All things "someone in charge" should have thought of.  DO THE WORK AT NIGHT!

 

Oh yeah!  Where were the readograph signs? None on Island Hwy...None on Burnside!

Do think about the people with continence issues! It's a stinky problem!
