INQUIRY INTO THE IMPACT OF THE MOTOR VEHICLE ON THE ENVIRONMENT WORKING PAPER NO 6: THE AUTOMOBILE AND THE ENVIRONMENT. IMPLICATIONS FOR THE PLANNING PROCESS

This paper examines the implications of increased environmental awareness on the process through which transportation agencies plan, design, construct, and operate the multi-modal transportation systems for which they are assigned responsibility. Topics examined include an overall planning objective and strategy, institutional arrangements, decision-making responsibilities, community interaction, evaluation of alternatives, and the interrelation of system and project planning. Basic guidelines are presented for an integrated approach to systematically incorporating social, economic, and environmental factors into transportation decision-making. Because the paper is directed at transportation planning conducted in a variety of cultural, institutional, and environmental settings, the discussion emphasizes overall procedures, strategies, work styles, and ways of viewing problems which generally should be applicable to transportation agencies in all OECD member countries. At the same time, the paper also provides a limited number of specific techniques and examples so as to illustrate the means through which the guidelines can be implemented. /TRRL/
