Proposed Movement Network
LAYERS OF IMPLEMENTATION
6.2 A Balanced Movement Network
The movement network has been derived from the existing road reserves and cadastral property boundaries wherever possible.
The UDF proposes an interconnected network and hierarchy of streets. In certain areas a finer-grained arrangement is proposed for greater permeability and flexibility in land parcel layout to encourage a variety of development opportunities.
Where intersections of roads are not granted due to road classification standards, the road-reserves are continued to allow for pedestrian access, which promotes better permeability, whilst keeping open the opportunity for future vehicular intersections or configurations.
Although a direct link from Clulee Rd in the north to the K113 and future Gautrain Station will improve connectivity and access for Linbro, it bisects several properties, requires the closure of Beacon Ave, and to avoid ‘uitvalgrond’, is only suggested. This link maybe best undertaken by a developer seeking to create a new precinct.
Traffic circles to reduce vehicle speeds and mark the main intersections along the 30m mobility avenue are also proposed.
The UDF promotes that the development of the internal street network is undertaken with pedestrian walkways, crossings and street-trees to provide a pedestrian friendly and safer, walkable urban environment.
