Westgate Road residents to see construction

Residents along Westgate Road can soon expect traffic delays.

City council approved the tender of the Westgate water main project to Wacor Holdings of Campbell River on Tuesday, which will get the ball rolling on construction.

The project is the “replacement of of the existing watermain between Westgate and Highway 19A,” said Ron Neufeld, city manager of operations. “Parts of it are in excess of 60 years old.

“Staff have responded to water main breaks but also water service breaks.”

The project will cost the city $540,508 and comes with a 15 per cent contingency fund in the event crews come across unforeseen deficiencies once they go underground.
