Public Open House on E&N Rail Trail-Humpback Connector Phase 2 Development

Feb 12, 2014

Victoria, BC– The Capital Regional District is holding an open house on the next phase of development of the E&N Rail Trail - Humpback Connector. CRD staff and project consultants will be on hand to discuss the trail design for phase 2 of this cycling and pedestrian trail being constructed within the E&N rail corridor between Victoria and Langford.

“CRD is excited to start on the next phase of the E&N Rail Trail,” said Susan Brice, CRD Regional Parks Committee Chair. “This new addition to our regional trail system will become an important non-motorized transportation and recreation link between Victoria and the western communities. It will contribute to a healthy, sustainable region.”

Date:   Wednesday, February 19, 2014
Time:   3:30-6:30pm
Place:  Band Room, Shoreline Community School,
            2750 Shoreline Drive

Under phase 2, a two-kilometre section of trail will be constructed in View Royal, beginning this spring. Trail construction will take place between Island Highway at the 4 Mile Bridge, and the Galloping Goose at the intersection of Island Highway and Burnside Road West.

Phase 1 of the trail, with 9 km of new and improved trail, is nearing completion. Until future phases of the E&N Rail Trail are complete, existing cycling lanes and sections of municipal roads in Victoria, View Royal, Colwood and Langford will connect the trail.

The only rail-with-trail in the region, it will form a key part of the regional trail network managed by the Capital Regional District, which includes the popular Galloping Goose and Lochside regional trails. For more information visit
