Roadway Connectivity

Creating More Connected Roadway and Pathway Networks

Victoria Transport Policy Institute

Connectivity refers to the directness of links and the density of connections in path or road network. A well-connected road or path network has many short links, numerous intersections, and minimal dead-ends (cul-de-sacs). As connectivity increases, travel distances decrease and route options increase, allowing more direct travel between destinations, creating a more Accessible and Resilient system.
