This paper was presented at Session 29 - Transport Planning Case Studies. The conceptual and experimental development of a relationship between accessibility and density, together with utility measures which can be derived from it, is summarised. This relationship and its utility measures can be used to illustrate or describe aspects of the transport-traffic-land use system, to examine the suitability of development proposals in terms of efficiency and equity and to evaluate alternative transport proposals. Examples are presented and discussed. Finally, by A suitable combination of transport supply, travel demand and Examples are presented and discussed. Finally, by a equilibrium in the transport-traffic-land use system can be determined both before and after some disturbance to the system. The utility measures allow the value of the disturbance to be assessed. A radically different approach to the transportation planning process is therefore suggested and this is discussed, using work done in Canberra as an example (TRRL)
