Within Markham's urban areas, over half of local roads, 20% of collector roads and 17% artieral roads are without sidewalk. While many of the newer areas of Markham include sidewalk facilities, there are many older neighbourhoods that lack safe and highly connected network of sidewalk.
City Staff has developed a prioritization program that aims to close this sidewalk gaps in the network over a period of ten years - from 2019 to 2028. A total of 111.6 km of sidewalk gaps is identified in this program, of which 64.6 km of sidewalk gaps are to be programmed for construction.
