THE STATE OF CANADIAN INTERCITY HIGHWAY SYSTEM, 1986-1993

This paper reports on an attempt to improve the state of knowledge about intercity road transportation in Canada. The paper examines the state of the network by presenting facts relating to the level and composition of vehicle traffic as well as to the current condition of the highway infrastructure. In particular, two important qualities of the highway facilities will be evaluated: 1) the level of capacity utilization of the system and 2) the ride quality of the network. It will also be shown that the way in which the data are represented spatially provides not merely statistics but powerful tools in the development of future policy on highways.
