Incorporating Environmental Planning Decisions in Transport Planning: A Modelling Framework

  • Michael A. P. Taylor
Part of the Transportation Research, Economics and Policy book series (TRES)


The transport planning process has evolved considerable sophistication involving modelling of existing land use, road network and travel patterns, and forward projection using these models to predict future travel demand and road network needs. Transport demand modelling of this type is in regular use at the regional, urban and local area scales of transport planning and the modelling procedures have now devolved to readily available and widely used packages on personal computers.
