The missing link is nearing completion.

Although delays have caused the original schedule to be revised, work on a small section of Leigh Road that will complete the connection between the Trans-Canada Highway and Langford Parkway should be finished by March, said Michelle Mahovlich, director of engineering for the City of Langford. Work on the $3 million project, which is being built by Westhills, began in February of this year. The completion date was pushed back to March 2019 due to to a number of reasons, including delays getting the hydro installed and having to adjust the railway grade. Another factor was that paving plants shut down operations from mid-December to February, Mahovlich explained. The work to be completed is the 140-metre section between Henry Eng Place across the railway tracks to connect to Langford Parkway.

“We’re looking forward to opening it up and providing the last big connector for major collector roads,” she said.
