THE ROLE OF THE LOCAL AUTHORITY ENGINEER

The author sees the contribution of the local authority engineer as being his systematic approach to and application of public transport co-ordination, but prefers to consider the overall role of the local authority in transport co-ordination. A progression from the structure plan to A transport policy and programme (tpp) for day to day use is described. The tpp would provide a statement of policies and short-term programmes broken up into urban and rural needs and reviewed annually. It is suggested that within a county all the various operators should combine to schedule public transport services. The duties of the transport co-ordination team are listed in an appendix. The discussion which follows covers aspects including the transportation input into structure plans, industrial relations in co-ordination schemes, lack of forward planning in public transport and the need for increased marketing of public transport. /TRRL/
