Abstract

The impact of the federal highway network on the quality of life of the urban and suburban population in the localities of Baja California in Mexico is evaluated through an analysis of relative and absolute accessibility conditions presented by the network, as well as interventions in road conservation in a decade of study. Likewise, the Urban Margin Indexes ( UMI ) is measured at a territorial scale called the Basic Geostatistics Area ( BGEA ), in an ex-ante and ex-post situation. It is observed that the priority has been to intervene on the primary road network and that in certain localities of the five municipalities of the entity it is necessary to intervene in the feeder and secondary network. It is concluded that those localities with greater accessibility within the road network are those with the lowest levels of UMI , mainly those that intersect with a road with wider widths of cross-section.
