Tranquille Road is another step closer to the light.

An alternative-approval process for the $2.4-million loan needed to upgrade streetlights and signs between Leigh Road and Sydney Avenue has passed, without a single resident writing in to oppose the borrowing.

To halt the process 6,732 residents must write in opposing a project. Work on the street upgrade is expected to start late this summer, and wrap up by the end of 2013.
