New road markings in Saanich to improve visibility and safety
Some road improvements in Saanich that you may have noticed.
The Saanich Engineering Department has recently installed new highly retro-reflective and durable road markings at three pilot locations in Saanich:
McKenzie Avenue - between Long Gun Place and Braefoot Road
McKenzie Avenue - between Quadra Street and Saanich Road
Wilkinson Road - between Greenlea Drive and West Saanich Road
The new markings are thermoplastic, meaning there's a shallow groove in the pavement surface. Equipment then lays molten thermoplastic into the groove, resulting in increased durability against traffic and snow plow wear.
In addition to inlaid markings, recessed reflectors were also installed at all three locations.
