(Question No 1689)

Ms Lawder asked the Minister for Transport and City Services, upon notice, on 24 August 2018 (redirected to the Minister for Roads):

Why isn’t better forward planning applied to major housing development area, so that roads are built for planned capacity (rather than having to improve/duplicate roads at a later date, for example build roads to suit the zoning of the area.

Mr Steel: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

Transport planning and traffic modelling is undertaken to predict future traffic flows including the required road capacity for all new development areas. Care is always taken to preserve sufficient land requirements within road reserves so that they can be designed for the future predicted ultimate traffic volumes, if and when required.

It is important to remember that as development of new areas proceeds, road duplications or upgrades are sometimes required, and these undertaken through a staged approach to infrastructure investment. This is done to ensure that road development is properly sequenced in line with the development that was anticipated.
