Planned Surrounding Road Network
An extensive freeway and distributor road network is planned surrounding Linbro Park, characterised by strong north-south and east-west linkages. Although many of the roads within Linbro Park are in place, there remain roads to be developed surrounding Linbro that will limit, but improve connectivity and accessibility.
Existing Road Reserves
The PWV3 freeway traversing the south of Linbro is considered a city development priority. This freeway will relieve pressure on the N12 and R24 between Johannesburg and Ekurhuleni. However, the complex nature of building such a freeway may still take a number of years before it becomes a reality. Two frontage roads running parallel to the planned PWV3 have been recently completed.
Completion of the planned K113 road east of Linbro will promote eastern development and provide several links to Modderfontein and onto the PWV3 and Marlboro Drive. Access is limited to 600m intervals.
The extension of Marlboro Drive eastwards from the N3 to the K113 will improve regional connectivity and access.
Due to future development in the area and increased transportation demands a new east-west link across the N3 freeway is also planned to better integrate and alleviate congestion at the Marlboro and London Road interchanges.
Existing road reserves and smallholding boundaries within Linbro Park provide a strong spatial structuring element to guide and shape future urban development within the area.
