MOBILITIES AND TRANSPORT PLANNING
Credit points: 15
Mobility, and its potential, is of profound contemporary importance; socially, economically and environmentally. Planning and transport are often poorly integrated especially in sub-urban, peri-urban, regional, and rural areas. Access and preferences for various transport modes are embedded in material, social, and political contexts and are increasingly expressed through lifestyle, health and urban form. The interaction between the provision of access, mobility and infrastructure and behaviours affect the form and function of urban areas, their economies and cultures, and people's well-being. This subject critiques current, mobility and transport theory and practice, through seminars and practice sessions. Students take an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the relationships between transport infrastructure and policy, settlement planning, and the enactment of identity, behaviours, lifestyle and ability. The course outcomes include critical appraisal of transport planning and the development of an integrated transport strategy for a community of interest to the student.
