A road too far?

Central Saanich has a small road down which visitors are attracted to one of the most beautiful gardens on the planet. The narrow roadway is lined with half-dead trees and cracked/heaved cement slabs. Drivers careen down the curved-steep-hill at dangerous speeds.

Years ago, local politicians commissioned a study for a major fix. A cost-sharing arrangement between the District, Butchart Gardens, Province and Feds proved elusive.

Are current politicians prepared to make a 2014 resolution, dust off the study and attempt another try?

Why not make the welcome road to Butchart Gardens as beautiful and safe as the destination.
