For the working purpose of this collaborate rethinking of transport policy and planning in Penang, we have now placed on line the first six main volumes that constitute the bedrock of the 2012/13 Halcrow Consultants series – which you will now find at https://goo.gl/veBcIh.
But the reports also refer in various places to six additional documents that appear to be important and that we will need to be able to access and study in order to interpret and decide about the usefulness of specific elements of the series. These are titled as follows:
- Overview of the Existing Transport Sector Report
- Survey Report – Highway and Public Transport Based Surveys
- Development of the Overarching Transport Master Plan Strategy Report
- Stakeholder Engagement and Public Consultation Report
- Penang Multi-Modal Transport Model Validation Report
- Model user guide to assist client in using this model to undertake future analysis.
It would also be useful to receive the final “Terms of Reference “ for the Halcrow project, which will permit us to evaluate better the various compoents.
These will be posted on our shared library as soon as they are received.
Other useful sources of information for rethinking exercize.
