Modelling Land Use – Transport Dynamics
The London to Ipswich Corridor in the United Kingdom
This paper describes the use of an integrated land use and transport model in the development of a long-term strategy for sustainable transport in the London to Ipswich Corridor (LOIS) in the UK. The project is one of a number of larger scale corridor studies commissioned by the UK government as part of a major programme of Multi Modal Studies. The application of the model is reviewed in the dynamic interactions between land use and transport policies, and the choice behaviours of the households and travellers in the region. This helps to explain the ways in which policy initiatives may be assessed in terms of the effectiveness in achieving sustainability objectives for the corridor.
