Postgraduate Faculty of Engineering

Leader: G Currie


Clayton Second semester 2007 (Off-campus)


CIV5316 covers public transport planning from a range of perspectives including policy, demand/markets, supply/operations and infrastructure. Policy analysis provides an understanding of the strategic, institutional and political context within which services are provided. This illustrates the diverse and often conflicting objectives which drive the development and planning of services. Demand/market analysis introduces students to the range of markets and their drivers. Supply/operations and infrastructure analysis provides an overview of the types of services which are provided and the operational, engineering and technology issues which govern their effective deployment.
