The District of Saanich is looking for input as it moves forward on a plan to lower the speed limit on residential roads. Saanich Mayor Fred Haynes proposed the reduced speeds earlier this year, as a way to make streets safer.
BC's Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure allows for local communities to submit pilot projects that improve road travel for British Columbians.
"As a result, District of Saanich staff are leading a collaborative initiative with several other Capital Region municipalities to apply for a three-year pilot project that would set the default speed limit to 40 km/h on streets without a continuous yellow centre line," said Troy McKay, Saanich's Senior Manager of Transportation and Development Services in a letter shared with The Chamber.
