CRD E & N Trail News

Our Newest Regional Trail
The E&N Rail Trail – Humpback Connector is a paved trail that is being built
largely within the rail corridor between Victoria and Langford. As a long-term
undertaking, this trail will eventually stretch from the Johnson Street Bridge to
Humpback Road and will be an important non-motorized transportation and
recreation link between Victoria and the western communities.
Project Update Overview
The CRD is completing intersection safety upgrades in Esquimalt. Preparations
are underway for construction of the trail between Wilson Street and Esquimalt
Road and related intersection safety upgrades at Esquimalt Road. We are also
initiating construction of Phase 2, between Island Highway’s 4 Mile Bridge and
the Galloping Goose at Island Highway/Burnside Road West. Trail signage for
completed sections of the trail in Langford, View Royal, Esquimalt and Victoria
is expected in early 2015.
