Integrated Transport Strategies: A New Initiaitve, or a Return to the 1960’s?

By A.D. May

Abstract

A recurring theme in the debate on urban transport policy in the last few years has\ud been the appropriateness of developing Integrated Transport Strategies as a basis\ud for identifying solutions to current and future urban transport problems. Their\ud proponents, including a growing number of local authorities, see them as a means of\ud ensuring that each element of transport policy complements the others. Those who\ud argue against them, and particularly the Department of Transport, have likened\ud them to the gramd and unattainable, blueprints produced by 1960s land use -\ud transport studies. This paper draws on experience with such studies in London,\ud Birmingham and Edinburgh to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the approach\ud now being adopted, to suggest ways in which it might be further developed, and to\ud identify, in the light of experience to date, those elements of policy which might\ud most effectively contribute to the solution of transport problems
