Length of Roads
Why monitor this
A greater distance of roads within a specified area generally indicates more physical encroachment on nature resulting in issues such as soil erosion, loss of habitat, disruption of wildlife, noise and loss of limited land.
What this measures
The length of all paved roads in Whistler are included in this indicator. While the width of roads also impacts the environment, it is not represented. Note that data was not collected between 2001 and 2004.
