HIERARCHY OF ROADS STUDY: GUIDELINES FOR THE INTEGRATION OF LAND USE AND ROADWAY FUNCTIONS

The objectives of this study have been to develop a framework for determining the complementarity of land use and road categories, and to develop policies and controls to ensure that conflicts between road traffic and abutting land uses are resolved or minimized. Information has been gathered to enable identification and evaluation of the existing level of compatibility or conflict resulting from the interaction between road and abutting land uses. Conflicts have been identified in the areas of noise, air pollution, road accidents, traffic congestion, visual intrusion and severance. There are a number of measures which may be taken to avoid, or minimise, road and land use conflicts. They are mainly concerned with improving the level of efficiency in the road network and controlling the type and extent of development of abutting activities, particularly along arterials. (TRRL)
