WEMBLEY ROAD WORK: Improvements to Wembley Road in Parksville are well underway and expected to be complete later this month. The project includes 1.2 kilometres of shoulder widening on the west side of Wembley Road from the City of Parksville boundary to Wright Road, a new crosswalk with lighting at the Robertson Boulevard intersection and widening of the existing bus pull-outs. Earlier this year, the province announced $250,000 of funding for the project, something Regional District of Nanaimo chair and French Creek rep Joe Stanhope has been advocating to get for years.
