The role of road authorities in urban society

The provision of highway facilities in urban areas is a complex issue facing society. It affects large numbers of people and can be destructive of property and social structure. It is too much to expect that a magic formula can be evolved to avoid any community disruption. It is argued, however, that without the road authorities' involvement in the total planning process, there can be little chance of implementing successful highway schemes. The precise place for road authorities in the hierarchy of organisations involved in the total planning process is open to discussion. Since no two states are entirely similar in their institutional arrangements, it is doubtful whether a singular solution for Australia can be evolved. The partnership established between the Christchurch Regional Planning Authority and the Ministry of Works is one worthy of examination (a).
