VISIONING - HOW IT CAN BE A ROUTE TO THE FUTURE

In order to help the UK Highways Agency (HA) plan for the future, it commissioned the Vision 2030 project to explore the future of the strategic highway network and the role of HA as a network operator. The project used planning tools such as visioning, scenario planning and backcasting. The principles of visioning are outlined. The Vision 2030 project simulated three alternative socioeconomic scenarios using the PESTLE tool: global economy (a market-driven approach), sustainable lifestyle (a community-based way of living) and control and plan (based on greater regulation of movement). Twelve future propositions about transport emerged from the simulation: the green highway, zero accidents, the connected customer, freight foremost, favouring public transport, understanding the customer, easy interchange, institutional change, managing supply, managing demand, cooperative driving on the automated highway, and land use planning.
