When is it being done? Who is doing it? How is it being done? These questions are asked by residential customers seeking to leverage Logan’s affordable housing options and access to services, networks and facilities; businesses looking to relocate or expand; and investors seeking to identify and rate/compare potential opportunities.

‘I had a question about a development in my street. Even though I found the answer, it took me a very long time. I wondered if there was a better way.’
Elizabeth Gray

 

The Problem
Increasing population requires development and everyone needs to benefit from it. Development is not without risks and pain. Residents need to know how developments will affect them and governments and planners need to understand the community’s needs.

Commonly we are in favour of tackling the root problem instead of easing symptoms. However, this is what transport is doing for decades. The view has shifted from building more and more infrastructure to using existing infrastructure more efficiently, but it is generally accepted that demand is growing and that it needs to be accomodated. But is this true? Engineers aim to learn from nature and incorporate natural phenomena in projects and one of these phenomena is the natural pulse of a city, area, or region. Travel demand is not a root cause, but simply the result of the need to travel.
