Abstract

The Simpang Ujung Aji road section - the boundary of Kabanjahe City is the road that connects the city of Medan and the city of Banda Aceh. Under one of the missions of the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing, road widening activities carried out on this road section to improve the accessibility of the area resulting in increased growth of the intersection. This study aims to examine the effect of widening road on space utilization seen from changes in land use before and after. The research approach uses a qualitative approach. The results of the analysis show that road widening affects changes in spatial use, as evidenced by changes in the area of land use and building additions along the road corridors. The results can be used as a reference for academics to be further developed in conducting research in other locations that will be the location of development activities and used as input and information for the Central Government or Karo District Government in making decisions for regional development related to changes in spatial use due to road widening.
