THE PROBLEMS OF TRANSPORTATION PLANNING AND AREA PLANNING IN URBAN CONURBATIONS

PROBLEME VON VERKEHRSPLANUNG UND RAUMPLANUNG IN BALLUNGSGEBIETEN

The origins of transportation problems are examined with reference to the following aspects: (1) the present situation regarding lack of training (of architects and civil engineers); (2) the lack of understanding of transportation planning (the conflicts that exist between politicians and planners); (3) insufficient data; (4) the legal situation (unclear regulations, the division of legal rights); (5) the chronological transference of resolutions (keeping proposed routes free of development, urban structure comes before infrastructure); (6) the lack of compatibility between transportation planning decisions and changes in structure. In actual cases the known deficiencies are discussed relating to private and public transport and public action groups and the lack of information the population has. Prerequisites to the success of a transportation planning analysis are comprehensive data and qualitatively proportionate analyses of parallel transportation plans. As a step in the planning stage of a prognosis it is shown that a present possible practiced method of approach for transportation planning is the processing of variants which serve as a basis for establishing a range of decision areas. /TRRL/
