Roads and Safety

Report a road safety issue within the District of Central Saanich to municipal.hall@csaanich.ca 

Central Saanich’s road network includes 136 kilometres of paved roads and two kilometres of unpaved roads, along with 470 streetlights and 80 traffic islands. Central Saanich is a beautiful place for active transportation. We are committed to improving walking, biking and other active modes of transportation so it is easy to stay healthy, enjoy our scenic community and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. When we plan roadwork, we consider all road users and explore opportunities to improve infrastructure for those who walk, cycle, and drive. 

When driving, please help keep our bicyclists safe
•    Please be aware of bicyclists and give them space
•    Watch for road signs, such as Share the Road signs (where the bike lane ends for a period) 
•    Shoulder check before making a turn
•    Do not park in a bike lane (the diamond symbols means it’s a reserved lane)

Although we check our roads continually and perform an annual survey, we appreciate your assistance in identifying potential problems. You can report a problem to us or download the free Bikemaps app, which we monitor to report bike-related incidents and safety concerns.
