2.2.4 Road Existence Example 3

Location of Example: 152°54'11" East, 25°39'51" South
Distinctive Characteristics:
  • Figure is an example of a road that no longer exists as there is no evidence of change on the surface of the ground where the road was once present.
  • If a section of road is still evident then it is likely that a road still exists, whereas, if there is no evidence at all of a road being present on imagery then it can be assumed to no longer exist.
  • Further evidence of this road no longer existing is shown by the old road crossing the perennial water with no associated crossing feature such as a bridge.
  • Additional evidence that the road does no longer exist maybe if the old road does not appear to go to any significant terminating feature, such as a building, waterbody or other infrastructure.
