ROAD PLANNING IN A CHANGING SOCIETY

The first part of the paper, the tenth Rees Jeffreys Lecture, is based on five statements concerning highway planning in present-day society: (1) road policies have caused unnecessary road casualties, have failed to provide adequate road systems, and have misapplied constructional resources, (2) bad highway planning decisions have arisen from a loss of confidence in the aims and principles of an industrial society, (3) these principles should be reasserted by professional associations and learned societies, (4) methods of communication on matters of road safety have been generally ineffective and should be revolutionised, and (5) new priorities are needed to restore purposefulness in attitudes toward transport planning. The author substantiates and elaborates each of these statements. /TRRL/
