TRANSPORTATION PLANNING IN LEEDS

Leeds is a commercial and business centre of regional importance. The basic principles of the Leeds approach to transportation planning still apply today. The original plan had to be modified. The recommended strategy now is a modest growth in car usage and an attractive public transport. Parking control, car pooling and staggered or flexible working hours are means of reducing the peaking of transport demand. By the urban traffic control system and an upgrading of the local rail system the demand is catered for. A light transit system could act as a back-up. The public prefers ground level footways. Reacting to and providing for perceived demand is replaced now by the principle of influencing transport demand. /TRRL/
