Beacon/Galaran/Stirling Road Realignment Project Description

Project Type: Realignment of Stirling Way, and construction of a roundabout

Proponents: C-1 Contracting

Authority: Victoria Airport Authority (VAA)

Location: Victoria International Airport (YYJ) – Sidney BC

Schedule: May 2023 – December 2023


This project involves intersection improvements at Beacon Ave. W. and Galaran Road in the northeast quadrant of the airport. The improvement will include the construction of a multi-lane roundabout, realignment and extension of Stirling Way.


Construction activities will generally occur during normal business hours; however, some night work may be required.  Types of activity include survey, utility works, civil work, road base preparation, paving, landscaping and restoration. 

The project is located groundside on the northeast region of the airport.  The project is mostly contained on an existing lease with some activities overlapping into the Town of Sidney.  Construction activities are not expected to affect airport operations.  Adjacent public roads may be affected with periodic lane closures and when moving construction materials to the site.  Traffic will be managed by traffic control flaggers.

The Project is being completed in partnership with the District of North Saanich, the Town of Sidney, and VAA.  Pedestrian improvements including a signaled crossing and an extension of the "flight path" multi use pathway will be completed.  In addition, a new bus stop will be constructed in the vicinity.
