Half of all spending on new roads in Australia is on local streets. Within the assumptions implicit in a hierarchical road system, this paper reviews economic requirements for residential street designs. It outlines a method for examining the implications of changing pavement standards in terms of increased safety and decreased delays. It concludes that, in the low traffic flows typical of residential streets, a considerable effort is needed to obtain better data to justify current design standards (A). (TRRL)
