As a result of experience in implementing the national highway system, the commonwealth has recognised that for some sections of the system a case could be argued that the national highway design standards should be regarded as ultimate goals which may not necessarily be warranted in the short term for economic or financial reasons and this leads to the establishment of staged standards which may be more compatible with short-term development priorities. In fact, development of most sections of the system may be more economically viable if the design standards were achieved over the longer term by a staged progression (a). (TRRL)
