A greater understanding of relationships between land use and transport has been identified as a key to forecasting and managing the demand for travel, which impacts on a number of policy areas but particularly that of tackling congestion. This project focuses on household location and how it is affected by changes to the transport system.
The main objectives for this project are as follows:
- Reports presenting a quantified understanding of the household re-location process;
- A model which embodies this understanding to forecast future household location as a function of demographic change and the transport system;
- Systems for forecasting household numbers at desegregate level as a function on transport accessibility and planning policy.
