URBAN TRANSPORTATION IN METROPOLITAN ADELAIDE
This working paper contains four separate reports selected to demonstrate four alternative responses to the transport land use interrelationship in metropolitan Adelaide. The first paper, entitled, "Land Use and Transportation Planning discusses road hierarchies, the need for bus routes, and the potential for rail access in the "North-West Development area". The second paper looks at existing transport facilities and services and how better use can be made of them. The third paper discusses "Staggered or Flexible Working Hours". It reviews the experience of staggered working hours and flexible work time around the world. The fourth paper, "Some Environmental Aspect of a Transportation Problem and/or Solutions", looks at the environmental implications of transport in six subdivisions in metropolitan Adeladia. The author emphasizes the domination of the automobile in subdivision planning, and the fact that if we must worship the car, perhaps we can do it more cheaply both in terms of finance and human lives. He suggests increased use of "T" junctions in subdivisions rather than cross-roads.
