Drivers have been finding alternate routes on Sooke Road in Colwood after a gas leak Wednesday morning.
The incident happened near Royal Roads University.
“We had a gas line hit at a construction site. It’s a two-inch gas line, so it’s quite large,” Colwood Fire Chief John Cassidy said.
“That prompted shutting down all four lanes of Sooke Road.”
Cassidy said Colwood fire is working with Fortis B.C. to close the line, which would allow the road to reopen.
Emergency crews are working on Sooke Rd near Royal Roads for
a gas leak. Traffic is being effected for the time being. Find an alternate route if possible. Updates pending.
