Minor upgrade to Westside Rd.

Driving on Westside Road is about to become  a little safer upon completion of an infrastructure upgrade. The project involves the re-aligning, widening, shouldering and installation of barriers for a total of approximately two kilometres at two separate sections of Westside Road.

  • The project will improve safety by removing 30 km/h curves, widening the roadway to include paved shoulders and installing concrete barriers.
  • Paving is due to be completed by April 2013. Subject to paving plant availability, the entire project is due to be completed by May 2013.

“These projects will make a significant difference for drivers in West Kelowna. The demands of a fast-growing community have taken their toll on infrastructure designed for far fewer people. Today, we’ve announced positive and decisive steps to correct that,” says Westside-Kelowna MLA Ben Stewart.
