The City of Victoria is continuing to make investments in active transportation to improve safety and comfort for people walking and cycling.

There are three major projects in 2019 proposed for The City of Victoria: Vancouver Street; Harbour Road; and a Hillside/Quadra connector. Information, proposed designs and engagement opportunities took place in Spring 2019 and staff will report back to Council in Summer 2019.
