ROADSIDE DEVELOPMENT AND WAYSIDE AREAS - DESIGN

THE FIRST STEP IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF ROADSIDES AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF WAYSIDE AREAS IS THE ACQUISITION OF ADEQUATE RIGHT-OF-WAY. ROADSIDES SHOULD BE DEVELOPED ACCORDING TO THEIR NATURAL STATE, WHICH CANNOT BE PRESERVED UNLESS ADEQUATE WIDTH IS OBTAINED. CONVERSELY, WIDTH SHOULD NOT BE FIXED: IT CAN BE NARROWED OR EXTENDED AS TOPOGRAPHY AND OTHER CONDITIONS WARRANT. ROADSIDE AREAS SHOULD BE PLANNED AT REGULAR INTERVALS SO THAT THE TRAVELLING PUBLIC CAN ANTICIPATE THEM. RECONSTRUCTION OR WIDENING OF EXISTING ROADWAYS MAY PROVE MORE COSTLY THAN CONSTRUCTION OF A NEW ROAD, MAKING ONE-WAY HIGHWAYS IN EACH DIRECTION.
