URBAN TRANSPORTATION DECISION-MAKING: 10. MANCHESTER AND LEEDS: A CASE STUDY

The salient features of the Manchester and Leeds metropolitan areas are briefly reviewed and their socio-economic characteristics are discussed. The political structures and process, transportation programs and needs, the institutions involved in the transportation process in Manchester are described, and corresponding features in Leeds are noted. Manchester is noted as slow to develop participation by the private sector in the transportation decision-making process. Recent efforts by citizens groups are noted. The Picc-Vic tunnel scheme (part of the SELNEC Transportation Plan for the Manchester metropolitan area) controversy is discussed. Transportation planning, programs and institutions in Leeds are examined and ways in which they differ from those of Manchester are noted.
