Traffic and transport contribute to many environmental problems. This programme mapped the current and future environmental pressure factors of traffic and transport within the framework of MNP, but also supported policy making by its principal sponsor (Netherlands Ministry of Spatial Planning

TRAIL Research School was established in 1994 to target world-wide developments in transport, infrastructure, and logistics, to combine high-level education and research, and to transfer and apply knowledge in practice.
The programme aim is to create a systems approach basis for the analysis, modelling and development of the national transport system, as well as for the carrying out of scientific research to assist competitiveness at the regional and global level. In addition, the goal is to create efficient and
The National Transport Development Programme (NTDP) is a planning framework that integrates the economic, organisational, institutional and other activities (actions, tasks, types of activities) into one system. It is worked out for a 15-year period (in two phases from 1996-2000 and 2001-2010). In

Traffic conditions have to be studied on a regional scale, where in most cases inter- and intra-urban networks function as one coherent system. However, traffic analysis as well as control generally only consider parts of these coherent networks, often leading to misinterpretation of observations
