Central Saanich has hired Stantec Consulting Ltd. to study the Keating Cross Road Corridor for over $70,000.

Chief Administrative Officer Patrick Robins said the company, council and the community will look at future land use patterns, review future property demand and provide a business case for strategic infrastructure investment, including highway access from Keating to the Pat Bay Highway.

Councillor Carl Jensen said strategically this is a smart move.

“There’s been a lot of talk about the Keating overpass in terms of access from the highway and I think that remains, but I think this is the step in the right direction because we’re looking at the bigger picture …” he said.

He added with 4,500 people working along Keating, he thinks there is a huge potential and looks forward to what some of the business representatives have to say.

The study will also include a community engagement segment that will bring together many of the stakeholders in the community, including the property owners along Keating, business operators, as well as other government agents and the community at large.
