PROVINCIAL HIGHWAYS MANAGEMENT PROGRAM - VOTE 2704

This program oversees the maintenance and operation of the provincial highway network, and invests strategically in infrastructure to ensure the system is safe, efficient and useable and supports Ontario’s transportation needs.

The program manages activities to preserve and protect the public investment in infrastructure. These include pre-contract planning, engineering and detailed design, highway rehabilitation, new construction and construction administration.

The program also develops operational policies and guidelines, sets engineering and environmental standards, manages research and develops new technologies. In addition to the highway network, the program is responsible for remote airports and ferry services.

NOTE: Commencing in 2003-04, Estimates are presented on the accrual basis of accounting. Information for 2002-03 and earlier years is presented on the modified cash basis, and therefore comparison between 2003-04 and earlier year figures may not be meaningful. Differences between cash and accrual relate to adjustments such as timing of transfer payments and provisions for bad debts, that would increase or decrease the 2002-03 amounts had they been presented on the accrual basis.

Adjustments for this Ministry, if any, are indicated by superscripted references above and are explained on the page following the Ministry Summary - Reconciliation of 2002-03 Estimates from Cash to Accrual.
