West Shore RCMP says Veterans Memorial Parkway has reopened between Cairndale and Latoria roads in Colwood after a gasoline leak from a motor vehicle collision closed the road for more than three hours.
At around 11:30 a.m., police had asked drivers to use alternate routes after the collision because the road was slick and dangerous.

Crews were on the scene cleaning up the fuel and have laid down Absorb-All to contain it. The Ministry of the Environment said the leak was limited to the road and no known waterways were impacted. The City of Colwood Public Works team was also at the scene.
