Highway gate a first on Vancouver Island
If you’ve been up in the Nanoose area north of Nanaimo lately you may have noticed there’s been a gate installed in the median.
Janelle Erwin, District Manager for Vancouver Island for the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure says its an emergency access median gate…..
This is the first such gate on Vancouver Island.
That section of highway 19 was chosen for the project because it was identified as a high crash segment of road.
There were 23 collisions there in 2014 and 2015.
