The paper first reviews the main changes that have taken place in transport over the past fifteen years and the way in which projections of traffic growth have had to be amended. The Newbury case study in "traffic in towns" and the approach used for studying towns in the recently-completed West Yorkshire transportation studies are used to exemplify changing attitudes to the means of meeting traffic pressures. The benefits from defining issues and objectives at an early stage in the latter study are described, together with the choice of appropriate measures and standards. /Author/TRRL/
