South Perimeter Road and Gordon Drive Extension Roadwork Begins this SummerMarch 21, 2018 10:00 am
March 19, 2018: Yesterday, the City of Kelowna revealed the results of their controversial Alternative Approval Process for the South Perimeter Road and Gordon Drive extension. A total of 120 petitioners went on record as opposed to the project. But, according to the City, “this is below the 10 per cent of electors (10,909 residents) required to defeat this South Perimeter Road and Gordon Drive Extension Development Cost Charge Frontending Agreement.” The positive vote makes way for accelerated construction of the roadworks originally slated for 2025 as per the Officially Community Plan.
The new road will extend 2.3 kilometres from the end of Gordon Drive to Stewart Road West, including a bridge that will cross Bellevue Creek. In addition, the City will complete significant improvements to sections of Stewart Road West and Saucier Road to handle increased traffic.
