THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TRANSPORT AND THE VIABILITY OF CENTRAL AND INNER URBAN AREAS

This paper argues that the inner areas are going through a process of adjustment to the changing balance of accessibility within cities. Land use and transport policies designed to resist this process are unlikely to be successful. It is forecast that the inner areas will continue to lose importance and that their viability will depend on their becoming more attractive places to live in. The recommended policies are intended to provide substantial improvements in the residential environment, internal circulation and external accessibility enjoyed by the inner areas, so tht the mobility and environmental quality may approach those enjoyed in the suburbs.
