Although the Road Condition Index declined by one point (80 to 79), we are still above our target of 72 minimum. Pavement condition degrades over time mainly due to vehicular loading and environmental factors. We actively inspect the roads every three years to treat any road segments that fall below our minimum Level of Service standard.

* Road Condition is assessed through a Ride Condition Index (RCI), which is a combination of many road surface defects into one index. The goal is an average of “72” RCI for the network. The following ranges represent the rating of roads:

  • Very Good: 88-100
  • Good: 78-87
  • Fair: 66-77
  • Poor: 46-65
  • Very Poor: 0-45

* Bridge Condition is assessed through a Bridge Condition Index (BCI), which is a combination of many considerations into one index, such as legislative compliance, pedestrian safety, maintenance of state of good repair, etc. The minimum average rating for bridges is “91” BCI. The following ranges represent the rating of bridges:

  • Very Good: 91-100
  • Good: 80-90
  • Fair: 70-79
  • Poor: 60-69
  • Very Poor: 50-59

1 Traffic Engineering Software (TES) is a live working document as such numbers reported may change. However at the time of reporting the numbers are deemed to be accurate.

A fatal collision involves a motor vehicle collision in which at least one person sustains bodily injuries resulting in death within 30 days of the date of the collision.

A non-fatal collision involves a motor vehicle collision in which at least one person sustains bodily injuries not resulting in death. Non-fatal collisions includes minor, minimal, or major injury collisions.

The 10% reduction in fatal and injury collisions target is the goal for the Vision Zero over the 5 year lifespan (2018-2022) of the Road Safety Strategic Plan (RSSP). Although we will measure collision statistics yearly, the true indicator will be in 2022 once road safety measures have been implemented.

There was a decrease in the number of fatal and injury collisions in 2018. Collisions are random and variable in nature and spikes and dips in the data may occur from year to year. The purpose of the RSSP is to reduce trending of fatal and injury collisions. Additionally, it is important to note that growth in the number of motorists and population is not captured in this type of reporting.

2 The 2019 modal split target was derived based on 2016 data obtained from the Transportation Tomorrow Survey and the Region of Peel approved 2041 mode share targets. Linear growth has been assumed from 2016 to 2041.
