A major driver of the increased road maintenance cost since 2016 is the increase in lane kilometres to support growth in the Region. Between 2016 and 2023, the Region’s transportation network system has been in a state of accelerated growth with an estimated increase of 57 lane kilometres. The following table shows the growth in the Regional road network over the past several years. 50.



The data above is a big picture look at what the Region has going for it and the growth that is being planned for through to 2051.
