POLICY AND STANDARDS FOR TRAFFIC GENERATING DEVELOPMENT
A safe environment and an efficient road system require compatibility between developments and vehicular and pedestrian traffic. As major roads are principally for vehicular movement, ideally there should be neither vehicular nor pedestrian access to or from abutting property. However, in practice existing road networks and existing road frontage development frequently produce conflicts between through and local traffic and between pedestrians and vehicles. These conflicts increasingly cause congestion, delays and accidents on the major road system with a deterioration of environmental quality. It is important that with new development or redevelopment, traffic problems are not introduced or perpetuated. To this end this publication outlines the traffic authority's policy and standards for traffic generating development. (TRRL)
