Originally published in 1995, this monograph examines a developmental approach to urban transport planning, with reference to Indonesia. It provides a profile of the country, outlining Indonesia’s geography and population, historical and political background, economic profile and constraints on development. Recent trends in Indonesian development are outlined. Indonesian urban transport demand and supply are analysed, and policy and planning frameworks for urban transport set out, including national policy and financial and institutional issues. Factors affecting urban transport are considered such as settlement characteristics and matching of transport systems with settlement hierarchy. The applicability of a developmental approach to urban transport planning for Indonesia is analysed with reference to experience in industrialized nations and the Third World.
