Is sketch modelling of any practical value in transport development?

The use of sketch modelling in network strategy development is viewed with scepticism in some quarters. This paper reviews the development and application of such techniques in a recent major study in NSW, with particular emphasis on metropolitan Sydney. The paper describes the purpose and nature of the models used. It then assesses their effectiveness both as reflections of the real world and in relation to the strategy options under investigation. A number of lessons for strategic transport planning are identified.
