Proposed Connections and Links
LAYERS OF IMPLEMENTATION
6.1 Making Connections
Linbro Park located east of the existing N3 highway and north of the planned PWV3 enjoys excellent regional connectivity.
Linbro will have three access opportunities to the N3
two at Marlboro Drive in the north, and one at
London Road to the south.
East of Linbro Park is the planned K113 which is essential for north-south movement of Linbro and the future Modderfontein New Town Centre. The number and placement of accesses from the K113 is influenced by sightlines and the minimum allowable distance of roughly 450-600 metres.
Road closures due to the Gautrain at 1st, Hilton and Clulee Roads could extend across to improve integration and access, however further detail investigations are required to assess geometrical alignment and viability.
The Modderfontein east-west link - Centenary Way is aligned with Oak Ave and affords Linbro the opportunity to develop a new mixed-use ‘high street’ comprising of retail, office, residential, leisure and social uses.
Realignment of Oak and 3rd Ave would
improve connectivity and access within Linbro. This would require however, that the adjoining neighbours participate in the consolidation and sale
of the properties.
Future extension of 3rd Ave across the N3 will alleviate congestion at the Marlboro and London Road interchanges and integrate better the areas
