In general, the minimum right-of-way width required for a public road
is 20 metres or cross section plus 3 metres on each side, whichever
is greater. Cross-section is defined as road prism (travelled road surface,
shoulders, containment slopes) plus any slope areas necessary to contain
the road prism.
The following diagram shows a typical roadway cross section (not to
scale). It shows how the right of way should be established relative
to the cross section of the road. Cut and fill slopes will vary depending
on specific soil conditions and standards. Applicants should contact
the District Development Technician for details.
The minimum right-of-way width for roads accessing lands beyond should
be 20 metres unless adjacent to an existing 10-metre dedication. There
should be no subdividing off of a right of way less than 20 metres across.
Special consideration is given to the development of ski village development.
