FUTURE PROOFING – WORDS OR DEEDS?

Transport networks are complex and dynamic. What is appropriate or even just affordable now may not have much relevance at some future date. Good planning will take into account the future possibilities and allow some freedom for future capacity, routing, technical upgrades, communications or whatever in line with these prognostications. Even where there is an identifiable incremental cost, it is possible to make provision for the future. Conversely poor planning will be driven by cost imperatives and will ignore (or be unaware of) any future implications.
