Transport planning renaissance

The fundamental importance of integrated transportation planning, as part of strategic and corporate planning for public authorities, is again gaining support and respect. Integrated transportation planning is necessary as part of a systematic understanding of both national and regional economies and the role of transportation networks. The present renaissance seeking a revival of integrated transportation studies and regional strategic transportation planning is timely. These initiatives will be an essential ingredient as the new breed of independent transport providers,ie contract road service providers, rail operators and public transport companies, in their individual corporate domains, become more firmly established. Integrated transportation planning, leading to soundly based and operative Regional Land Transport Strategies which are put together jointly with all the regional 'owners' involved, has never been so important as it will be in the first two decades of this millennium.
