Summerland will soon have more sidewalks as municipal council voted on Monday evening to approve an extension project.

The sidewalk along Prairie Valley Road will extend from Saunders Crescent to Cartwright Avenue.

A sidewalk on the south side of Jubilee Road will be extended from the post office to the existing sidewalk east of Sinclair Road.

The sidewalk on Prairie Valley Road is a high priority for the municipality while the safety for pedestrians from Sinclair Road to Jubilee Road is also a concern, Don Darling,  director of engineering and public works said.

The Prairie Valley Road project has an estimated cost of $600,000, while the sidewalk for Jubilee Road is expected to cost $150,000.

A total of $941,000 is in the budget for this work.
