These guidelines provide suggested design criteria for each level of road in the road hierarchy and provide some simple aspects of geometric design.
While responsibility for the approval of the detailed design will rest with the relevant local government, the WAPC will be guided by the policy and these guidelines in establishing road reservations and networks through its determination of subdivision applications. Local governments are advised to favourably consider these guidelines, but also to consider any Australian standards where they exist.
The Government of Western Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders both past and present.
