Update: April 19, 2024

We are pleased to inform you that following a tender process initiated in January 2024, Hoel Contracting has been chosen and approved by the District of North Saanich's council as the successful tender bidder for a forthcoming project.

The project's proposed commencement is scheduled for mid-August 2024.

We appreciate your continued interest and support as we progress with this undertaking. Further updates will be provided as the project advances.

Update: June 26, 2023

An aluminum trussed bridge has been designed for the proposed pedestrian link across Reay Creek. In order to span the high-water mark in a 200-year event, a multi-span bridge is proposed with a segment of approximately 4 meters and 18 meters respectively. The environmental sensitivity of the site has required additional protection measures to obtain Provincial permitting under the Water Sustainability Act. The District is pleased to have recently received permitting approval from the Province, however it is ‘project-delivery’ restricted due to wildlife protection requirements and a short working construction window. Accordingly, construction procurement will be delayed until early 2024 to ensure environmental protection measures are in place and a competitive construction procurement is obtained.


Update: January 23, 2023

At the December 5, 2022 Regular Meeting of Council, staff were directed by Council to proceed with the project to create a pedestrian link between Reay Creek in North Saanich and Peter Grant Park in Sidney. A project schedule is currently in development, and we anticipate the project to be complete by fall 2023. Herold Engineering was awarded the project with Swell Environmental Consulting Ltd. handling the environmental permits.



The District of North Saanich and the Town of Sidney are partnering to explore the opportunity to create a pedestrian link between Reay Creek Park in North Saanich and Peter Grant Park in Sidney. This link would require either a bridge over Reay Creek or a route next to the Pat Bay Highway at the existing bridge. We have developed three options for your consideration.

Thank you for completing the survey about the three options. Your feedback will be used in combination with detailed costing, technical analysis, and financial considerations in order to determine next steps.
