The Victoria Commuter Train would connect Westhills in Langford to the Victoria Roundhouse via 15km of the existing E&N railway. From end-to-end, the trip would take just 20-25 minutes.
Low, Grow and Go
By utilizing the existing E&N corridor, the Victoria Commuter Train project has a substantial head start. Acquiring a dedicated right-of-way and constructing a rail line in today’s real estate market makes light rail a very costly proposition that would cost hundreds of millions of dollars. This 15km portion of the E&N corridor only requires an estimated $5.5 million in rail-bed upgrades to be train-ready, making the Victoria Commuter Train very LOW cost.
The Capital Regional District is GROWing, and its fastest growing area is on the West Shore. Transportation investments are being implemented and considered to accommodate the 22% population growth and resulting congestion expected in the region by 2038.
The Victoria Commuter Train is one of them, and it’s ready to GO. It’s estimated that the Victoria Commuter Train could be up and running in just six to nine months once funding is secured.
