Integrating land-use and transport infrastructure planning: towards adaptive and sustainable transport infrastructure

Transport infrastructure authorities across Europe face ever-tougher challenges to accommodate increased traffic while dealing with climate change and delivering environmental and societal objectives. This requires a shift from current small-scoped-ad hoc, technical solution driven-planning approach towards a broad/network-scoped-strategy driven-planning approach. This paper builds on a research programme developed for EU’s Horizon 2020 in which Transport Infrastructure is Integrated with Land-Use Planning (TIILUP). This proposed approach is discussed using Dutch experiences, addressing such issues as: spatial concepts (e.g. multi-modal corridors, nodal development, transit oriented development), multi-modal network optimisation at various spatial scales, life-cycle issues, combined value creation and capturing, and institutional and governance approaches. It is concluded that only by an inclusive approach addressing these various issues an adaptable, sustainable and resilient transport network can be achieved that is closely coordinated with spatial development.
