Waterfront Walkway

Waterfront Walkway

waterfront walkwayProject Overview
The Town has a long-standing goal of establishing a safe, continuous walkway along the Qualicum Beach waterfront. Some waterfront properties have been purchased over the years and converted into public space, but property acquisitions are expensive and can only be done periodically. Recognizing that there continue to be segments of the waterfront where private property obstructs the extension of a walkway next to the water, the Waterfront Master Plan recommends that the Town explore the reconfiguration of Highway 19A to build a separated pathway for pedestrians/cyclists along the roadway to connect existing segments of the protected walkway.

Project Work Plan
The reallocation of the Hwy 19A right was undertaken in several steps and was completed in Spring 2021:

  • Notified affected property owners of the pending changes by letter.
  • Erect signage to prohibit parking for a safe pathway. Temporary delineators may be required in some areas.
  • Erect permanent barriers and/or delineators to maintain a safe, separated pathway.
  • Paint line markings.
