Saanich Council has voted in favor of a recommendation to request a portion of federal government owned land be secured for the Interurban Rail Trail, should the property be sold.

Saanich Councillor Dean Murdock says Monday night’s vote was unanimous.

“and it was in favor of asking CRD Parks to communicate with the federal government to secure the right of way through the property of The Centre for Plant Health, through their property, so that the trail line, the Interurban Trail Line, can be completed through that section of the property”

Murdock says the area has been identified in the Centennial Trails Project as part of a trail line running from Swartz Bay all the way into Downtown Victoria along Interurban Road.
