Paper presented at the 20th Annual South African Transport Conference 16 - 20 July 2001 "Meeting the transport challenges in Southern Africa", CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria, South Africa. ABSTRACT: The incremental change and gradual deterioration of road capacity and transport efficiency is a common problem faced by road authorities, world wide. One of the effective approaches to address this problem is the integration of road planning and land use planning. Land use planning measures
relevant to road planning will be discussed in this paper including their implementation aspects.
The experience of integrating land use planning and road planning in Australia will be discussed
with particular reference to the State of Queensland.
Queensland recently introduced an Act of Parliament which facilitates the effective integration of land use planning and road planning. This Act contains legal mechanisms to implement effective land use measures beneficial to roads. The main focus of this paper is to discuss the Integrated Planning Act 1997 on its usefulness in integrating road planning and land use planning.
