Abstract

Road density level inevitably influences many aspects of daily life of a community including the location, density and types of residence, social-cultural, economic and leisure activities. It also influences the range and quality of the provision of goods and services to the community, which eventually determine the life style and the quality of life of the community. Many literatures pointed out that the transportation-land use relationship is reciprocal and dynamic in nature. As our towns and cities have grown, both in terms of their population size and functions, the relative advantage of locations and accessibility within them has changed through time because of the development of new roads in response to the current pressure for development. Inevitably, these developments provide different level of accessibility to new locations. This in turn will ease the movements or reduce the travel costs between locations, which open up new opportunities and contribute to the economic vitality of specific economic and social activities as well as residential locations.
