Broughton Pier facility to undergo structural repairs

Repair work is scheduled to begin in late October 2022

August 19, 2022, Victoria, BC, Canada – Greater Victoria Harbour Authority (GVHA) is moving forward with needed repairs to the Broughton Street Pier facility and walkway beginning in late October 2022. Repairs include, replacing some original wood piles, mechanical and electrical repairs, and repairs to other structural components. The anticipated completion date is the end of March 2023. 

These necessary repairs will ensure the continued use and enjoyment of Broughton Street Pier by locals, tourists and commercial vendors. GVHA has contracted Salish Seas Industrial Services for Construction Management and Herold Engineering Limited to lead engineering design for the repairs. 

GVHA anticipates periodic disruptions to land and water access to maintain public safety while construction activities proceed. The project team will make every effort to minimize these disruptions during the project. Victoria Harbour Ferry pick-up and drop-off will temporarily relocate to Hyack Terminal. 

“The Broughton Street Pier facility is an important feature of Victoria’s working harbour. It hosts over 250,000 visitors annually, including Greater Victoria residents, tourists and moorage guests. The Broughton Street Pier symbolizes the live-work-play harbour that GVHA pro-actively supports.” – Ian Robertson, CEO of GVHA.

Brought Street Pier connects the David Foster pathway between the causeway and Hyack Marina. Revenue from cruise ships berthing at the Breakwater District at Ogden Point Terminal is financing this project.
