Premier John Horgan vowed Thursday to upgrade Bamfield Main logging road, where two UVic students died in a bus crash last week, but he did not say what changes would be made or when.

“It’s terrible that a tragedy of two lives being lost had to focus our attention on it, but I know that we’re going to be working … to try and find a way to improve that road,” Horgan said.

A Wilson’s Transportation coach bus carrying 45 University of Victoria students, two teaching assistants and the driver went off the gravel logging road and slid down an embankment between Port Alberni and Bamfield last Friday. The bus was bound for the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre on Vancouver Island’s west coast.
