Road closure approved in View Royal

Change to accommodate development shouldn't negatively impact traffic

Mayor and council approved the last step in a road closure and removal of highway designation for part of Cheam Road, off of Chilco Road, in View Royal at a council meeting Tuesday.

The move was approved by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure on Nov. 14, and will relocate the road to accommodate a new residential development by Victoria’s Limona Group.

There are still administrative steps to be taken before any work is begun, said Kim Anema, chief administrative officer for the Town of View of Royal, and he added that traffic should not be overly impacted.
