WATCH: Controversial bike lanes on Pandora Avenue are now ready for cyclists
Victoria’s first protected bike lanes along Pandora Avenue are now ready for cyclists.
The controversial project is part of the city’s $9 million bike lane initiative.
The separated bike lines on Pandora will open at 6 am Monday, May 1st.
There are new traffic signals for cyclists and vehicle drivers will no longer be able to make right-hand turns on red lights.
The City of Victoria is hopeful that protected bike lanes will increase safety and encourage more people to cycle.
The project is the first of five biking corridors that will be built in Victoria by the end of 2018.
