2.2.6 Road Existence Example 2

Location of Example: 148°29'26" East, 34°08'05" 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 once was.
  • 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.
  • 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.
Regional Considerations:
Figure: Representation of a Road which no longer exists.
