RP NCTS 1995-03: Effects of Opening Arterial Roads in Exclusive Residential Subdivisions

Exclusive residential villages are planned residential subdivisions which are comprised of single-detached housing units, and for which access is restricted to residents only. Urbanization leads to an increasing need for additional capacity in the existing road networks. Village size, shape and location are the most important aspects of its interaction with the road system. When villages' conflict with the function of the primary road system, opening of these villages is a very visible option for increasing network capacities. Unfortunately, there has been a lack of careful consideration on the effects of such moves on the residents of these villages, and whether or not such action would necessarily abate the decline in performance of the road traffic system. This paper sought to identify the most important benefits of exclusiveness or conversely to identify the most serious disadvantages of its loss. From the village inventory, around 16.18 percent of all residential villages in Metro Manila are exclusive, affecting a large number of households. The surveys identified security and clean, quiet environment as the most important benefit of exclusiveness.
