Main Article Content

Oluwakemi Aluko



This paper provides a review of the challenge of urbanisation and urban transport from a planner's perspective. Following the establishment of the relationship between urban structure and transportation, it goes ahead to describe urbanisation and how its rate varies from developed countries to developing one. It also presents urbanisation as a challenge planners are having difficulty with combating. It then identifies transport planning as an important component of urban planning, points out some of the challenges of transport planning, and describes why some approaches were unsuccessful. Finally, some promising planning options are described. It concludes that while the uptake of these promising options is slow, they have the potential to resolve development problems in cities facing urbanisation challenge.
