The Directors of the Association of the Savary Island Committee support
reduced speed limits for Savary Island.

individual neighborhoods before establishing any new speed limits.

4.2 Transportation Bud Graham
4.2.1 Townley Walk Update
Work on the Townley Walk upgrade was undertaken in late May.
Capilano Highways delivered 800 tons of gravel to Savary. Trees on the
Townley Walk road allowance were removed, the grade was made more
accessible, a crown was built, side ditches were made for water runoff.
and the subgrade was fortified with large gravel. The surface will be better
as traffic oncel compact it.
Unfortunately, the Telus pedestal, which the SIVFD asked to be moved,
stalled completion of this section of the project. We are awaiting
discussions between MoT and Telus about the pedestal issue.
Bud noted that some excess gravel was spread on parts of the main road.
in locations identified by the SIVFD and ASIC as being problematic.
4.2.2 May Vehicle Count Report
The traffic counter was deployed from May 10th to May 26th. The first
position was 5 days at the top of Indian Point hill. The average vehicle
count was 42 vehicles per day. The counter was then moved to the
bottom of Wharf Hill for May 16th to May 22nd. The average vehicle count
for the first 3 days of the May long weekend were 154 vehicles per day.
Average vehicle counts for the next 4 days were 153 vehicles per day.
The counter was then moved to Savary Island Road just before the the
road splits for the propane depot. The average vehicle counts for the 3
days was 66 vehicles per day.
4.2.3 Speed Bumps on Savary Island Road near the main Fire Hall
It was reported that someone constructed speed bumps on the road near
the Fire Hall. This is a safety issue for the fire trucks. This was reported
to MoT who would ask Cap Highways to fix the problem. However, the
person who constructed them agreed to rectify the problem.
