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.
The pedestrian bridge would be three metres wide and 39 metres long, with terraced timber sundecks at one end and stairs to the rocky beach.
