|Title: ||Urban transport directions: challenges for future research|
|Authors: ||Hensher, David A.|
|Issue Date: ||1992|
|Series/Report no.: ||ITS-WP-92-5|
|Abstract: ||Urban transport research and planning is facing some major challenges. There is a new
realism emerging which is recognising that it is not possible to construct enough
capacity to match projected growth in traffic, especially automobile-based traffic.
Furthermore, there is no consensus. The important questions in very broad terms are:
"what are desirable futures?" and "how do we get there?". This paper sets out some
major themes which urban transport researchers should address as contributions to the
development of both a tactical and a strategic view of better futures. At the heart of the
debate on a desirable future is a consideration of the role(s) of the market and the role
of non-market controls (including physical planning incentives and policies).|
