STRATEGIC PLANNING IN THE JOHANNESBURG METROPOLITAN (JOMET) AREA. 1. STUDY DESIGN

This paper introduces the statutory requirements and recommendations for transport planning in South Africa and describes the physical, social and transport structure of the JOMET area. The overall study design is covered in some detail, with particular emphasis on two elements that have considerably improved the effectiveness of the study: sketch planning (strategies) and the scenarios approach. This is followed by a description of the base-year surveys undertaken, together with key trip-making statistics such as trip generation rates, modal split, trip lengths, time profiles and general socio-economic statistics. The paper describes the public involvement programme related to the JOMET strategies. It is concluded that the study design has proved to be extremely effective and could well prove to be a useful model of current transport planning practice in a developing country. (Author/TRRL)
