18.39: Transport Routes in Northern Manitoba

The photo shows an area about 35 miles (56.3 km) southwest of Thompson close to Pisew Falls Provincial Wayside Park. On it three transport routes are visible. In the centre is PTH 6 1 that runs north from Winnipeg, through the Interlake area to Grand Rapids and then north to Thompson. Several cleared areas on either side of the road 2 are probably associated with its construction, one of them 3 north of Soab Creek 4; flowing from Soab Lake 5 is a gravel pit with buildings in it 6. West of the road is a less straight railway line 7 on which a train can be seen in the south 8. To the east is a cleared area followed by a power line 9 that runs south to Winnipeg.
