Victoria is undergoing the development of the first protected cycling infrastructure in the city, starting in the downtown core. When complete, the new active transportation network will encourage people of all skill levels to ride, skate and rollerblade throughout the Capital City.
Pandora Avenue Protected Bike Lane Construction
Construction on the city's first protected active transportation lanes is well underway on Pandora Avenue with major roadwork completed in the 500 and 600 blocks of Pandora between Store Street and Douglas Street. Development between Douglas and Vancouver Street is well underway with the majority of concrete curbing, new traffic lights and infastructure in place. Read more about the Pandora two-way network that's set to open in spring 2017.
Fort Street Protected Bike Lane Construction
Fort Street will be the next corridor in the active transportation network after Pandora, offering cyclists, skateboarders and people using scooters and rollerblades a two-way protected lane through the heart of the city. View the designs here.
Phase 1 Project Timeline
We didn’t arrive at building an AAA active transportation network overnight, seasons were spent on community engagement, technical feedback and technical design before shovels hit the ground on Pandora Avenue. The network map below is a quick overview at how we got to where we are now and where we're headed. The network will be rolled out in phases, read more about the planned phases and routes.
