UVic gets $2.4M as part of $11M investment into Vancouver Island cycling, pedestrian infrastructure


The University of Victoria will be embarking on a number of active transportation projects as part of the federal government’s plan to invest nearly $11M into the Vancouver Island region. Nearly $2.4M will be used to create new bike and pedestrian pathways, add traffic-calming measures at crosswalks, and improve lighting and signage. “I think the benefit will be safer cycling, which will bring more cyclists,” said UVic President Kevin Hall. “(It) is going to reduce the amount of carbon that we put in the atmosphere by people who typically come here driving their vehicles.”
