Traffic cameras added to Nanaimo highways

NANAIMO – Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure announced two live traffic cameras in the Harbour City.

Residents of the Harbour City can take a peak at live traffic conditions in Nanaimo from anywhere in the world, thanks to an investment from the provincial government.

Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has just announced the installation of five new traffic cameras on Vancouver Island, with two of the locations in Nanaimo.

One camera will be installed on Trans-Canada Highway at Zorkin Road and Brechin Road, while the other will be set up at Comox Road and Terminal Avenue intersection.

In a press release, Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Todd Stone said the new cameras will help improve traffic planning within Nanaimo.

“These new cameras mean those planning to travel in and through central Vancouver Island can easily check current road and weather conditions for various locations before heading out,” Stone said in a release.
