New Allandale path garners improvements

Colwood connector to finish by school’s start

A revised connection is coming to Colwood.

Work is underway to refurbish the newly dubbed Allandale Greenway, a trail starting at the end of Allandale Road and cutting across to Veteran’s Memorial Parkway near Sooke Road.

The pathway, named after Allandale road that runs into it, sees newly upgraded gates at both ends, signs making the trail more visible. It will be constructed from asphalt grindings reused from road improvements currently underway on three other sites.

Mount View Avenue, where the city is cost-sharing a project to allow for a new bike lane and traffic circle; Ridley Drive, where drainage improvements and repaving is currently underway; and Wishart school where sidewalk improvements start next week, will provide the grindings needed to complete the project.

Completion is expected in time for the scheduled start of school in the first week of September.
