Research Outline

Working with a range of stakeholders the Ring Road project is setting out to find out a wholistic perspective on how the project has shaped mobility for the collective of Calgary.


“A Century of Urban Planning in the Making”

Exploring the complexity of traffic movement needs along with personal connections to the free flowing highway, we are searching to fully understand how the road functions to serve, connect and create opportunity within the city and surrounding region.

There are many opinions about the ring road whether it is viewed as a barrier to pedestrian movement or a regional necessity for business, we all have a voice. The highway project is nearing completion after a long history of planning and construction, we want to know how this major project has shaped your life in a positive or negative way.

If you would like to share your opinion there is a quick survey you can complete for feedback. It is anonymous and gives a medium for expressing thoughts on the Ring Road. 

If you are a stakeholder such as a Community organization, a Industry member or an interested member of the public and would like to participate in this study please contact Oliver Prcic at
