Building bike lanes on Cadboro Bay Road from Foul Bay Road to Bowker Avenue is one of Oak Bay Council’s Strategic Priorities. Oak Bay’s Official Community Plan (OCP) captures the District’s intent to develop pedestrian and cycling networks that connect multi-modal transportation systems within Oak Bay and with our neighbouring communities. The Capital Regional District’s Pedestrian and Cycling Master Plan (PCMP), published in March 2011, also described the vision for Cadboro Bay Road, designating the street as “a separated on-street” bike facility route.
The District won a grant of $78,160 via the BikeBC program, in order to help build bicycle lanes on Cadboro Bay Road. The BikeBC program, administered by the British Columbia Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, aims to support green transportation options and encourage healthy, active lifestyles.
