The concrete changes to a section of road between the two school zones are aimed at increasing the safety of pedestrians and drivers.

The long-awaited changes at the intersection of Booker Avenue and Cadbury Bay Road in Oak Bay are underway. The project will gradually move from Cadbury Bay to Booker, moving to the far right, meaning the driver will have to slow down to take a safe turn.

The upgrade includes a pedestrian-activated light, as well as a shelter in the middle of Cadbury Bay Road. Oak Bay’s director of engineering, Dan Horan, said the intersection would feel narrower.

With a budget of 42 425,000, the project will take 10 weeks and is expected to be completed by the end of November or early December. Of this, $ 185,000 comes from abstract developments specifically dedicated to improving the intersection adjacent to its 43-unit Bowker collection.
