Motorists on the Malahat are experiencing delays once again on Tuesday morning as daytime blasting has slowed or stopped traffic near Shawnigan Lake.
Frustrated commuters have taken to social media to voice their concerns with traffic coming to a standstill for anyone travelling southbound into Greater Victoria. Northbound traffic is also affected, but to a lesser extent.

Earlier this month the Province opened both northbound lanes of the highway to accommodate travellers during the long weekend, after long lines caused restlessness during construction.
