REVIEW OF TRANSPORTATION PLANNING IN AUSTRALIA. FINAL REPORT

The functions of the committee were as follows: (I) to review recent changes and requirements in the field of transportation planning. (II) to recommend desirable policies in the organisation of and responsibility for transportation planning policies (as distinct from planning goals and policies). (III) to exchange information on, and prepare guidelines for, the selection of appropriate methodology for transportation studies. (IV) to examine avenues of facilitating the use of data and information developed in transportation studies in the normal workings of state road authorities. This report sets out the results of its considerations. Chapter 2 presents the recommendations resulting from the committee's considerations. Chapter 3 briefly reviews the development of methodologies and processes used in transportation studies in Australia. It is concluded that while these were of a high standard, and reflected the best practices at the time they were conducted, a number of inadequacies are now apparent. Chapter 4 considers guidelines for the type and extent of future transportation studies. Chapter 5 deals with public participation in transportation studies. In chapter 6, organisational structure is considered. Chapter 7 examines existing legislative and administrative procedures, and discusses selected areas of current concern, including the dependence between land use and transportation planning, the effect of planning blight, compensation, environmental impact legislation, review and objection procedures, and public participation. Appendices are bound separately. /TRRL/
