Work starts this week on deadly stretch of Trans-Canada Highway in Langford

A stretch of the Trans-Canada Highway in Langford where two people died in separate crashes recently will get some attention starting this week.

The Transportation Ministry says they'll install temporary reflective, flexible poles along the centre line to help better mark the highway between Leigh Road and the West Shore Parkway. They're officially called "centre median picket delineators."

The work will take place over the next three nights so that it doesn't impact the daytime commute.

The province says it's a temporary measure and the eventual plan is to expand that stretch of Trans-Canada Highway to four lanes with full concrete median barriers.

Last month, Langford Mayor Stew Young urged the province to make immediate improvements to that stretch of highway after two people died in separate crashes.
