Investing in our roads, sidewalks and paths

By Jim Watson, New Edinburgh News, April 2018 Edition
One of the most important aspects of our city that sets it apart from others is its particularly large geographical scale. Its total land surface of 2,758 square kilometres
is large enough to encompass the cities of Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, and we are still larger by 100 square kilometres. From rural and farming areas to family-centric suburbs to vibrant urban neighbourhoods, Ottawa’s geography
makes it a uniquely diverse and rich city. But Ottawa’s large size also means that we
have an extensive network of more than 5,460 kilometres of paved roads to continuously develop, improve and maintain.
