The Ministry prefers to use a service road system to access local businesses
located on or fronting primary and secondary highways. If local road
systems cannot be obtained, a frontage or backage road may be approved
as an alternative. The frontage road is not an ideal solution, however,
because of intersection problems and the high services-to-lot ratio.
A local road system is a firm requirement along primary highways in
The normal right-of-way width for a frontage road is 15 metres.
