A proposed pedestrian bridge which would greatly enhance a portion of the Trans Canada Trail in Victoria was further endorsed by city council. The two bridges should be built this year. More info below:
C/O TIMES COLONIST:
Arguing connectivity is key to the success of the David Foster Harbour Pathway, Victoria councillors rejected on Thursday a staff recommendation to defer construction of the Heron Cove footbridge.
Instead, councillors agreed with earlier plans that will see both the $2.8-million bridge at Heron Cove and the $1.7-million bridge at Raymur Point built this year.
The bridges are part of a $27-million plan to complete the five-kilometre David Foster Harbour Pathway from Ogden Point to Rock Bay.
