Transport Planning and Traffic Engineering

Transport Planning and Traffic Engineering

Transport Planning and Traffic Engineering is essentially divided into four parts.
The first part (Chapters 1-11) deals with planning for transport, and concentrates on
the historical evolution of the transport task; transport administration and planning at the
governmental level in Britain; principles underlying the economic and environmental
assessment of transport improvement proposals, and of transport analysis and forecasting;
contrasting traffic and travel demand-management strategies; a basic approach to the
development of a town centre parking plan; planning for pedestrians, cyclists and disabled
persons; roles and characteristics of the various transport systems in current use; and
introductory approaches to the planning of public transport and freight transport systems.
Planning of any form is of limited value unless based on sound data.

Everybody travels whether it be to work, play, shop or do business. All raw materials
must be conveyed from the land to a place of manufacture or usage, and all goods must
be moved from the factory to the market place and from the staff to the consumer.
Transport is the means by which these activities occur; it is the cement that binds
together communities and their activities. Meeting these needs has been, and continues
to be, the transport task
