In reply to an enquiry by Jerry Donaldson of the CBRA, Harley Machielse, Director of Engineering at the District of Saanich, explains:
The construction taking place in Gyro Park is a Fortis gas main installation for 2605 Sinclair Rd., the last dwelling on the road before the Park.
The initial alignment was to extend the gas main down Sinclair Rd, however it was clear that a number of trees would have been impacted. The approved alignment has less impact on the surrounding environment and able to provide service to Beachview Pl in the furure. Unfortunately the restoration will need to be delayed until weather permits and the grass can grow.
