Active transportation infrastructure plays a vital role in Greater Victoria's economic resilience, making it more convenient for people to commute to work while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The District of Saanich has announced work on eight projects that will enhance pedestrian and cycling safety.
The projects are part of a new approach that speeds up the traditional approval process that can delay municipal projects. Saanich's "quick build" approach uses money from the operating budget.
The municipality has also issued a progress report to help track the status of each project.
