This paper discusses some current considerations in urban road planning. In general, these considerations stem from the limited finance available for roadworks, the increasing emphasis on sociological and environmental aspects, evolving community attitudes and concerns, and current uncertainties in those matters that will affect future travel. The changing road planning process, and some matters relating to protection of longer term options for future road improvements, are discussed. Some aspects of travel forecasting, including the future outlook for energy for transport, are mentioned. Evolving procedures for assessment and evaluation of proposals, and for community participation, are described, and some compensation matters are also discussed. /TRRL/
