McCallum Road Extension
City of Langford
Constructed in late 2015 and early 2016, the McCallum Road Extension entailed the connection of Florence Lake Road at Brock Avenue with McCallum Road at Citation Road.
The project completed a long desired link between the commercial areas of McCallum Road near Millstream Road and the Leigh Road Interchange to the west. As a result, the McCallum Road Extension provides a much needed second point of access to the Trans-Canada Highway from the Millstream Road/ McCallum Road commercial area.
Westbrook Consulting provided topographic survey, detailed design and construction inspection services for the construction of the roadway.
Among the challenges presented by the project was the need to fine tune the road alignment such that the new road was constructed in an optimal location, without impacting adjacent private properties. Rock cuts in the order of 12 m were required to be constructed in order to achieve the road design.
Another challenge was the requirement to design and construct a new access for an existing residence due to a necessary land acquisition by the City of Langford. Westbrook worked closely with the City to ensure that the new access provided was safe and as convenient as possible for the existing residence, under the conditions of steep grades and a narrow access corridor adjacent to the new municipal roadway.
