This Commission, in partnership with CEPEU, carried out studies and proposed an industrialization plan for the city, chosen for a pilot project for the implantation of industrial districts. In the following years, the first Master Plan was carried out. The choice of the theme is due to the need to research the public policies of space production, seeking to identify if the proposed Plans play an active role in the process of urban mesh formation. The analysis of the proposals for the road system will be made, considering that this infrastructure serves as the basis for the entire spatial configuration of the city. Therefore, this work intends to study the role of road infrastructure in the Plans, through its implementation and, especially in relation to the Urban Mobility Plan. (AU)
