Improvements to the Malahat coming
An area of the Trans-Canada Highway that passes through the Malahat is getting a 34 million dollar upgrade. Both the feds and the province will be kicking in the cash to upgrade five kilometres of the highway where it passes through the Malahat Village.
BC Transportation Minister Todd Stone says the project will contribute to a safer and more reliable connection between Victoria and Duncan and improve the economic development opportunities.
The improvements include expanding five kilometres of highway to four lanes with wider shoulders, installing three kilometres of median barrier, and providing improved and safer highway access through a frontage road system.
Work is anticipated to begin in early 2017 and be completed in 2018.
