Reasonable access: if the available alternative access locations and routes do not substantially impair access to and from the property, reasonable access is generally considered available. Reasonable access is generally considered a matter of physical necessity for allowed use of the property - not a matter of convenience or competitive market necessity.

right-of-way: the entire width between the boundary lines of every way publicly maintained when any part of it is open to use by the public, or the entire width of every way declared to be a public highway by any law of this province.

Roadway: the portion of a highway ordinarily used for vehicle traffic exclusive of the berm or shoulder. In the event a highway includes two or more separate roadways, the term refers to any such roadway separately but not to all roadways collectively.
