After tracing the development of modern transport planning, the author describes changes in transport administration (role played by central and local government structure, organization of conurbation transport studies, establishment of the Greater London Council and passenger transport authorities). Various traffic and public transport policies proposed during the 1960's such as traffic management techniques, traffic restraint and promotion of public transport are outlined together with methods of evaluating transport policies. Mention is made of the transportation planning models used in mathematical simulation. In part 2, developments during the 1970's (including transport policies and programmes and transport supplementary grants) are reviewed. In conclusion, the importance of the preservation of environmental quality and accessibility is emphasized. /TRRL/
