According to a City of Langford traffic advisory (see below the map), the final stretch of the West Shore Parkway will open on October 4, completing access from the Sooke-ahalla four-lanes to the Trans-Canada Highway without having to travel through Langford.
Please be advised that on Wednesday October 4th the City of Langford will open the last segments of the new West Shore Parkway at the railway crossing.
The road will be open to the public for use after 11:00 AM.
There is a ribbon cutting ceremony earlier in the morning however vehicle, cyclists and pedestrian traffic will not be allowed into the area until the ceremony is fully completed and the area has been cleared for safe passage. Therefore we ask that all vehicle traffic plan to use this road after 11:00 AM. Any vehicle traffic arriving before the road is opened will be turned away.
Thank you for your patience as we work to safely open this new road.
The existing Humpback Road railway crossing will remain open until Friday October 20th at 9:00 AM when it will be gated off for emergency access only.
Since you’re here, we have a small favour to ask.
At 1.7 million page views over the past year, more people than ever are reading SPN. We had hoped advertising local services and events would sustain this service, but that has not come to pass. Advertising revenues are falling; status quo is unsustainable. Readers, please consider a small monthly donation. This can help secure the future of SPN. Business owners: Please consider an ad. More than massive local exposure, you will also be affiliated with an independent business that is 100% local, 99% paperless, and highly valued by the 98%. That’s priceless.
Thank you for your continued readership.
