B.C. puts $24 million towards active transportation projects

SOOKE, B.C. – The Government of British Columbia is investing $24 million in 80 active transportation infrastructure projects in communities around the province.

At an event in Sooke, B.C. located on Vancouver Island, Minister of State for Infrastructure and Transit Dan Coulter highlighted two projects planned for the community.

“People are choosing to walk, run and cycle more each year. Our support means communities can think bigger when tackling transportation challenges and providing more options for people to get around,” Coulter said, pointing at completion of the Little River Multi-Use Trail in the area which will establish a link between the Sun River Neighbourhood and Ravens Ridge Park which connects with Sooke’s town core.

Safety improvements for pedestrians and cyclists are also being built along Charters Road, including extended sidewalks, bike lanes, pedestrian crossing infrastructure and a boulevard enhancement.

“I am thrilled and grateful to see the Active Transportation Infrastructure Grants program bolstering our community’s efforts toward a more sustainable and accessible future. With projects like the Little River Multi-Use Trail and enhancements along Charters Road, we’re improving safety and also fostering a healthier, more connected and resilient community,” Sooke Mayor Maja Tait added.

The Active Transportation Infrastructure Grants program funds Indigenous, local and regional governments with cost-sharing investments of as much as $500,000 for infrastructure projects, and as much as $50,000 to develop active transportation network plans, a release said.
