TIILUP workshop held within FOR theme of asset management and public business models
On Wednesday 27th June 2012, the core expert group on the subject of Transport Infrastructure Land Use Planning (TIILUP) met in a workshop at the FEHRL offices to finalise the draft roadmap on this spatial aspect in road operations governance.
An integrated approach that links the planning stage of road operations to the wider land use planning processes can bring considerable benefits in process time and investments by avoiding or minimising expensive mitigation measures such as noise barriers. The roadmap will lead to a suite of practice-driven solutions for such an integrated approach.
In the workshop, the attendees shared various illustrative cases from their country. This helped to create a common understanding and conclusion of this complex aspect in terms of scope, objectives, focus and research topics to drive for funding. In addition, the core group explored various typologies of spatial transport corridors to consider for demonstration of the solutions. Criteria were population (around 10 million), density of functionalities (housing, recreational, industry, services etc) including seasonal issues (touristic regions such as in the coastal zone from Spain to Italy) and environmental sensitivity (eg transport links through the Alps).
The TIILUP aspect is part of the Forever Open Road (FOR) theme on asset management and public business models. Therefore, the next steps are to finalise the roadmap on this aspect and aggregate it in the overarching roadmap for the Adaptable element of FOR to which the asset management theme belongs (click here for an overview of the FOR Innovation themes).
The TIILUP content will also be included in ERTRAC's roadmap on land use that is now under development. This means that FOR content is now included in three ERTRAC roadmaps (Land Use, Climate resilient road transport and sustainable freight transport) and will help drive the topic for funding under the European Commission (EC) Horizon 2020 programme. Obviously, the content will also be included in the cross-modal roadmap on infrastructure innovation that is currently under development by the newly-formed new inter-Technology platform task force on infrastructure research for Horizon 2020.
