The Town of Qualicum Beach has installed a new solar-powered speed reader board on Highway 19A near Hall Road.

The reader board provides a flashing visual cue when the speed limit is exceeded and acts as a reminder to reduce speed when needed.

The town said it has implemented multiple traffic improvement measures this year, including three portable speed counters, two pedestrian-activated lights and crossings on Highway 19A and a speed reduction on Rupert Road.
