This report which investigates the community and environmental aspects of urban highway proposals describes current experiences and difficulties encountered by state road authorities in regard to urban highway proposals, and discusses the place and role of state road authorities in the overall development planning process. The process of developing acceptable highway proposals is reviewed, and the presentation of the proposals to the public is discussed. Procedures to reduce objection from owners and occupiers of property are considered and recommendations are made relating to development controls, purchase by negotiation, compulsory acquisition, and compensating tenants. The report also covers the monitoring of the mechanism by which feedback and road construction can become a part of the process of reconciling transport goals with changing community values and goals and to help determine state road authority policies.
