(MTR) Metro Toronto Roads


Municipalities and other governmental agencies often perform surveys of roads and land under their control (parks, public transit corridors). MTR denotes Metro Toronto Roads and Traffic, the authority responsible for this plan (BA-1982). Municipal road surveys are useful in re-establishing boundaries as they provide previous survey evidence for consideration by the surveyor in giving his legal survey opinion. Note that found survey bars with MTR identification and all derived distances or directions from these MTR plans must be identified and credited on the survey plan, when used to re-establish or verify property boundary corners, angles, curves or bends.
