Paving the Way for a Smooth 2015!

In the spirit of the season, we have some pretty exciting news to share with all of you!

Recently, our MLA, Mr. Iain Rankin, toured Brookside with the Minister of Transportation.  On December 10th, the Brookside Community Homeowner’s Association was notified by Mr. Rankin that paving the gravel section of Irisweg Drive has been approved for 2015.  This work will be completed in the 2015 summer/fall paving season.

This short section of road sees heavy construction traffic and needs nearly constant maintenance. We would like to send our thanks and appreciation to Mr. Rankin for his support and assistance in providing this much-needed upgrade to our community's infrastructure.

Happy Holidays to our residents and neighbouring communities!!

Addendum from Mr.Rankin's office:
Irisweg is being used as a main thoroughfare for many residents in the new section of the development at the end of the Brookside Road as well as most of the construction traffic from the development.

DOT has to pave the last 100 feet of Brookside Road and the decision to pave Irisweg at the same time was made because there was only a section of approximately 1/2 km that was unpaved. DOT will be trying to get the developer to contribute toward the cost of paving the last section of Irisweg.

Due to the increased use of Irisweg as a main traffic route DOT are considering upgrading the status of Irisweg from a “J” class road.

Our Constituency office has had numerous emails and other correspondence from residents about the poor condition of Irisweg, so we are pleased to see this work done. If you have more questions, please feel free to send them to us at

All the best

There have been a lot of questions regarding this announcement.

As we are early in the process, many of the details, including costs, are still being worked out. BCHA will provide updates as information is available.
