Roles in Controlled Access Highways
  Access to CA Highways

Under Section 49 of the Transportation Act the Ministry can restrict access to or from a controlled access highway. These highways have been designated Controlled Access because they are designed to accommodate traffic flow rather than access to adjacent properties, to a greater degree than other highways. Consequently, permits to access a Controlled Access highway are much more limited than on other highways. Access via side streets, frontage roads or collectors is preferred.

Information about applying for a controlled access permit is available in Section Controlled Access Permit
