Collector Road

A collector road is a non-arterial road that collects and distributes traffic in an area as well as serving abutting property.

Collector roads generally provide a link between either arterial roads or distributor roads and local roads. These roads usually provide for the movement of traffic, have one lane in each direction, allow parking and provide direct access to residential properties. Collector roads are the repsonsibility of local government.
