Residential Streets & Service Routes

Lorne Avenue Residential Street

The extension of Lorne Avenue provides the means of bringing the community directly into the Campus. The segment of Lorne Avenue that falls within the Campus boundaries should be designed as a continuation of the existing street.

Elements of the Lorne Avenue Right-of-Way

  • 20.0m R.O.W.
  • 11.4m roadway, which includes one 3.5m travel lane in either direction to accommodate shared vehicular, and cycling circulation, and a 2.2m on-street parking lane (including curb and gutter).
  • 2.3m planting and furnishing zone on either side of the street with street trees and shrub landscaping in at-grade planting beds, and street furnishing such as benches, pedestrian scale lighting, garbage receptacles, and signage.
  • 2.0m sidewalk on either side of the street.

Service Access Routes

There are several service access routes identified in the Movement Framework. These are essential for the purpose of building maintenance and servicing, to access parking, and for drop-off and delivery of goods for the University.


  • The service access routes must be designed as part of the public realm space and should reflect the same quality and materiality used for all other pedestrian pathways and linkages through the Campus.
  • The materials used for the access routes must be able to withstand the weight and regular use of service vehicles.
  • The use of service access routes must be time and day controlled with clear and visible signage that reflects the regulations.
