Sustainable cities

As part of the UK Engineering and Physical Science Research Council's research programme on Sustainable Cities, the University of Leeds Institute for Transport Studies carried out research to improve some aspects of the calibration of the DELTA/START model of Edinburgh. This involved running a series of tests to investigate the importance of transport and environment impacts on land-use under various alternative strategies. DSC provided the DELTA model (linked to MVA's START model), and assisted in the application of the results and the running of the model.

ITS' main findings from the research were reported in papers presented to the PTRC Summer Annual Meeting, 1997 and to the World Conference on Transport Research, 1998. (For references see "Publications")
