Development plan Brisbane roads, 1965. This ‘Recommended stage development plan’ for Brisbane appeared in the Wilbur Smith and Associates plan for Brisbane. The different colours denote pathways requiring development: red is stage 1 1965-70, blue is stage 2 for 1970-75, green is stage 3 for 1975-80, and brown is stage 4 for 1980-85. Major developments such as the riverside expressway are shown in this map. With its ‘Street and highway plan’ the transportation study recommended the removal of Brisbane’s trams.
