Network City Activity Centres: Developing an analysis, conception and communication tool for integrated land use and transport planning in the Perth metropolitan area - Department for Planning and Infrastructure WA (2008).

The primary objective of the research project was to develop an interactive decision tool (SNAMUTS) to assist in examining scenarios for the future growth of the Perth metropolitan area in activity centres framed around the accessibility of the transport network and the accessibility of place.
The SNAMUTS tool enables the quantification of the effect of transport infrastructure improvements and modifications, and of land use intensification, on the accessibility of activity centres and corridors by different modes of transport. The SNAMUTS tool provides an in-depth examination of the potential accessibility by public transport to all centres across the metropolitan area.

Research Team: Carey Curtis (leader); Jan Scheurer; Roger Mellor.
