TRANSPORTATION PLANNING: SURVEY AND SYNTHESIS

A CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK FOR TRANSPORTATION PLANNING IS ESTABLISHED BY RELATING SEVERAL EXISTING BODIES OF KNOWLEDGE, NOTING THEIR DEFICIENCIES, AND THEN FOCUSING ON THE ESTABLISHMENT OF OPTIMAL IMPLEMENTATION TIMES OF TRANSPORT FACILITIES. SUGGESTIONS FOR THE QUANTIFICATION OF INCOMMENSURABLE AND IMPUTED MONETARY IMPACTS OF TRANSPORT FACILITIES ARE PRESENTED. AN APPROACH WHICH CALLS FOR EMPLOYMENT OF CASUISTIC MODELS IN COMBINATION WITH SUBJECTIVE MODELS IS RECOMMENDED FOR TRANSPORTATION INVESTMENTS REQUIRING LARGE CAPITAL OUTLAYS. THE DISCUSSION INCLUDES EXAMINATION OF EXISTING DYNAMIC PROGRAMMING MODELS AS WELL AS NEW APPROCHES.
