Central Saanich is awaiting a Tsartlip First Nation response before altering bylaws that would affect truck traffic on Hovey Road.

Hovey and Tomlinson roads act as connectors for residents, farms and the eastern edge of Tsartlip First Nation property.

At Monday night’s council meeting, the Traffic Highways Regulation Amendment Bylaw was introduced and read a first time. Included in the first reading of the bylaw was a map of the area that included the eastern section in the schedule.

The proposed amendments to the bylaw would give Central Saanich the authority to regulate and prohibit extraordinary traffic through extraordinary traffic agreements.

The district decided to forward the first reading along with the map to Tsarlip for review and comment before they go further. It will also restrict commercial and industrial traffic over the unimproved portion of Hovey, extending to West Saanich Road through the use of extraordinary traffic agreements.

 

The current traffic order permits semi-trailer traffic through Tomlinson and Hovey between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. as long as they are accompanied by a certified pilot vehicle. That order expires Nov. 30.
