TRANSPORT AND URBAN STRUCTURE

Transport planning and the design of urban transport facilities requires accurate predictions of future urban structure and the residential density and demographic composition of zones in the urban region. In turn improvements to the urban transport system can affect the distribution of population in the urban region. Some results of a current research program in Melbourne University, Australia on the effect of accessibility and traffic density on urban structure are described. A new accessibility model for residential development is proposed and techniques described for determining the likelihood of changes in residential density and demographic composition of zones. A definition of environmental capacity is proposed. /Author/
