Work is underway on the Leigh Road connector in Langford

Motorists will be able to travel from Langford Parkway to the Trans-Canada Highway via Leigh Road

The Leigh Road connector is finally underway in the City of Langford.

The project will streamline traffic by connecting the south end of Leigh Road to Langford Parkway and will allow drivers to travel across the railway tracks, giving them another access to Westhills and West Shore Parkway. It will also allow traffic to travel from Langford Parkway directly to the Trans-Canada Highway via the Leigh Road overpass.

Michelle Mahovlich, Langford’s director of engineering, said construction has started on the south end of Leigh Road and will include upgrades such as pedestrian walkways.

Leigh Road and Langford Parkway will have a signalized intersection, including dedicated left turn and through lanes for eastbound traffic on Langford Parkway, and for those travelling southbound on Leigh Road there will be dedicated left and right turn lanes.

The project has a $3-million price tag with funding from the Westhills development as part of their rezoning and development agreements with the City.

The project, according to Mahovlich, is estimated to be complete by mid-to-late summer.
