TOWARDS A PROCESS FOR JOINT VENTURING IN THE MANAGEMENT OF URBAN ROADS AND THEIR LAND USE ENVIRONMENTS

The interaction between land-use and transport is vividly displayed along urban main roads straddled by retail, commercial and street developments. There are daily conflicts between access to land uses and movement along the road and between pedestrian and vehicular traffic. The problems that arise from such conflicts are most acute in shopping strings on busy roads. Continued growth in motor vehicle traffic on these roads has led to a deterioration of environmental quality in the adjacent land uses, yet the shopping centres often still perform a major economic and social function. This research study adopts an integrated land-use and transport management approach to the problem of urban arterial corridors. The aim is to reduce the friction caused by retail and commercial frontage development on the traffic performance of arterial roads. The mechanisms to achieve this - such as long-term adjustments through changes in zoning or pro-active measures to encourage redevelopment - are poorly understood, and this study explores relatively untested ground. It reviews approaches towards land-use management on busy roads, discusses the various mechanisms to facilitate redevelopment along arterial roads, and then explores, in more detail, the processes for joint ventures.
