The recent construction of bike lanes on West Saanich Road at Pat Bay are indeed a safety improvement for vehicle, cycle and pedestrian traffic.
However the addition of traffic calming posts on this section of road are a hazard to cyclists, vehicles and pedestrians.
If vehicle speeding is the issue, it largely occurs in the morning rush when Victorian Epicure workers and building contractors are driving to work and parents are driving children to school.
Some regular RCMP speed traps would likely be very effective in managing the vehicle speed and stopping cyclists (at the weekend huge pelotons) riding more than single file.
These hazards need to be removed.
