Worcester transportation framework: NMT & arterial routes

A self-explanatory overview of the major, rural Western Cape town of Worcester. Proposed routes include the Western Arterial to alleviate freight traffic between the N1 Cape Town, R43 Ceres and R43 Villiersdorp. This aims to relieve pressure on the overburdened Rabie Ave and associated urban streets. The Eastern Bypass is an extension of the R60 linking this major route to the N1 freeway. This too, provides heavy freight and logistics traffic from the industrial area, direct access to arterial routes. This removes this burden from town secondary routes and inner-town areas. This will provide the impetus for the introduction of a series of NMT routes, linking the entire town.

An urban edge is proposed, to promote densification and protect the Cape Winelands aesthetic of the town, disallowing rampant sprawl. Transit interchanges are also proposed along the existing rail lines and a recommissioning of the Worcester-Robertson line is proposed.
