TRANSPORT PLANNING: ALSO A TASK FOR MANAGERS AND LEADERS

VERVOERPLANOLOGIE: OOK EEN TAAK VOOR BESTUURDERS

The increasing social interest in traffic and transport has also consequences for transport planning. Particular 'border areas' developed within this study area show a very direct confrontation between the many social concerns, for example parking policy. It appears in practice that there exists a more immediate desire in the policy and decision making process in these areas to achieve a management consensus rather than increasing knowledge of traffic planning. This is illustrated by the experience of the Dutch cities of Delft and Utrecht. In her role as a pre policymaking science, traffic planning must have a great deal of management sensivity. However, a free and innovatory presentation is still necessary for other, more research oriented work areas. (A) For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 862276.
