Transport Planning

Transport planning is based on forecast changes in land use activities, associated movement demand patterns and transport system capacities and contributes to the development of:

  • Policies and strategies: Using analytical studies and techniques to assess options and alternatives at the strategic level.
  • Packages and projects: Using more detailed analysis to evaluate implementation proposals.

Transport planning is most effective when undertaken on a multi-modal and inter-disciplinary basis in close co-ordination with other professionals, including: planners, urban designers, transport economists, public transport planners and engineers.

Modelling of different types is often an essential supporting technique to transport planning (see separate page on modelling)

New infrastructure is an essential ingredient in future transport system planning, but it is important that infrastructure is only considered after other options have been excluded.

Transport planning needs to be complemented by effective  communication, participation and consultation with stakeholders and the public.
