This was never about the law (as noted by alonso previously)- this is about Principles and Best Practice, neither of which is in evidence in this road scheme.

I’ll say it again- this infrastructure is not required. Whatever problem you think this resolves can be resolved in other ways far less destructive than a road.

And while you are (Jesuitically) correct regarding the destruction of houses vs the ‘destruction’ of a suburb (though I would infer that alonso didn’t mean the physical destruction of the suburb), I would contend that it is not necessary to damage the physical fabric of a place in order to severely damage the character of that place.

This is an updated version of the well known Donald Appleyard study from 1969. Care to comment?
