This chapter discusses the planning team's proposals for roads and bridges as part of the development plan for Derry. It highlights the initial confrontation with city surveyor Colonel James MacKinder and the support of the steering committee in providing information based on their local knowledge for inclusion in the drafts without changing the substance of the documents. This chapter also describes the overall plan created by the team that involved consolidating the existing central area of the city, upgrading amenities, and providing land for residential development related to places of work and social activities.

Keywords:   roads, bridges, development plan, Derry, James MacKinder, steering committee, residential development
