Integrated resource planning for transport: asking better questions

21 Apr 2005
Description

Current transport planning methods do not deliver accessibility in a sustainable way - a phenomenon illustrated by the dominance of road construction as a means to provide access in cities. Sally Campbell and Stuart White propose a comprehensive evaluation methodology for investment decisions aimed at improving urban accessibility - integrated resource planning (IRP) for transport. Using IRP in transport planning means agreeing on a metric for improved accessibility in a location and then developing a range of 'options' to meet this need. Each 'option' is evaluated in terms of cost per unit of improved accessibility.
