THE ROLE OF PLANNING IN THE PRE-CONSTRUCTION OF URBAN TRANSPORT PROJECTS IN AUSTRALIA

Metropolitan communities demand and use transport facilities as a tool which is ancillary to their normal social and economic activity. Few individuals have an inherent preference for particular modes of routes but will simply choose the most convenient, cheapest and safest way of getting from a to b. Transport is not an end in itself. The aim of this paper is to make a number of suggestions relating to the purpose, scope, position and timing of the transport planning process as one part of our future activities, which lead to new transport projects or adjustments to our existing system in the years ahead. /Author/TRRL/
