Construction at Royal Bay: Pedestrian Paradise

Construction @ Royal Bay is your regular update about what’s being built for the community. Projects large to small, we’ll cover them all! During the final weeks of December, the team at Royal Bay worked on several projects to improve the pedestrian experience:

Two active transportation arteries into the community are well underway. The Metchosin Road sidewalk is now being paved and will be completed soon, weather dependant. It offers a picturesque walk for pedestrians coming into the community from Colwood, with an expansive view of the Royal Bay waterway to the left. Meanwhile, the North Ridge Nature Trail received several safety upgrades this week. This walking path offers a spectacular view of the entire community coming off of Metchosin Road. It has now been properly graded and an attractive wooden fence has been added, which ensure it can be safely enjoyed by all.

At the corner of Caspian Drive and Dunlin Street, you’ll now see a concrete pad that will connect the neighbourhood sidewalk to the Meadow Park pathway network. This feature is one of three concrete pads that will ultimately create a central pedestrian hub complete with lighting in this area, which is sure to encourage neighbourly interactions as residents of Royal Bay stroll around their community.
