Abstract

The CREATE project is concerned with transport policies in cities and how these have evolved over time in response to changing challenges and priorities. In particular it examines how cities have succeeded in limiting the growth and extent of road traffic congestion by reducing reliance on the private car for day-to-day mobility. One of the project's propositions is the existence of a 3-Stage “Transport Policy Evolution Cycle” spread over 50+ years, which gradually shifts the policy emphasis and investments priorities from catering for road traffic growth to building a liveable and healthy city, through developing streets as ‘places’. This report identifies how 'Stage 3' cities assess the benefits of their major transport initiatives in terms the city policy objectives, looking at a set of 10 relevant impacts: number/length of trips made, trip quality,time use in transport, personal security, street liveability, time spent in places, health/wellbeing, community severance, equity/social inclusion, and visual blight. We then focus on how 'Stage 1' and 'Stage 3' cities make investment decisions to prioritise the deployment of sustainability measures and then fund and finance their development Master Plans.
