Trucks not wanted here

The City of West Kelowna is making changes to a bylaw regulating where commercial trucks are allowed to drive.

Acting on complaints from people in the Canyon Ridge neighbourhood that concerned trucks were using local roads instead of the highway, council asked that the bylaw be revisited.

That was in October of 2015.

This week, council gave first reading to an amended bylaw showing which secondary roads within the municipality commercial trucks are allowed to travel.

The routes being considered include:

Between hours of 7 a.m. and 8 p.m.

  • Glenrosa Road between Highway 97 and City of West Kelowna border
  • Gellatly Road South between Highway 97 and Gellatly Road
  • Gellatly Road between Highway 97 and Boucherie Road
  • Boucherie Road between Hudson Road and WFN lR#9 border
  • Hudson Road between Boucherie Road and Highway 97
  • Shannon Lake Road between Bartley Road and WFN lR#9 border
  • Old Okanagan Road between Highway 97 and WFN lR#9 border

24 hours a day

  • Westlake Road between Highway 97 and Stevens Road
  • Stevens Road between Westlake Road and Bartley Road
  • Bartley Road between Highway 97 and Stevens Road

Other roads within the city can be used only when it's necessary to conduct business. Highway 97 remains the main route for trucks.

Before moving forward with the changes, council has asked that a public consultation process be undertaken, including with Westbank First Nation.
