The mayor of Sooke, Maja Tait, says the safety improvements on Church at Throup have “small bit of work outstanding,” including the roadway line painting and the installation of delineators.
“Along with the walkable paved shoulder improvements on Grant Road and Golledge, the lines at Church/Throup still need to be painted,” wrote the mayor in correspondence with SPN. “We had an issue with our line painting contractor in that they have been repeatedly delayed over a span of months, so the DOS [District of Sooke] has a new contractor to compete the works.”
Standing delineators will be installed along Church at Throup once the painted roadway lines are completed. The mayor also said that Cyclelane rubber curb delineators will be installed on Golledge.
“The Tuffpost delineators have just arrived within the past couple days, and an RFQ to have a contractor install them will likely go out,” says Tait. “These require the painting to be complete because they sit directly on the fog line.”
She estimates the work will be done in late September or early October, “so long as things go relatively smoothly from this point onward.”
These improvements were funded with help from ICBC grants from the Road Improvements Program.
