URBAN PLANNING 2 Introduction In the world, urban planning has become a social, economic and political issue. The management and the strategies used to establish and develop infrastructure in Australia are in great consideration. Perhaps, public transport in the urban areas are on the rising, and it has been facilitated the increasing density mostly in the outskirt of Melbourne City among the fringed areas. The increasing population has put pressure on the road network and public bus transport. The dynamic subdivision and expansion of buildings and residence areas mean the population of people living in Melbourne that were originally designed as suburban, need public transport. It means more planning on road highways, bypass and specific public vehicle to have their routes. The core element of plan Melbourne is an integrated transport system but the need for railway transport to ease time and challenges for employees to arrive at the city on time and have access to transport services. The nominal consideration in the urban planning department of Melbourne is to address road congestion, and the firm to improve the bus network either to reach their destination or the newly constructed rail transport. Public transport practitioners in Australia have been served and informed well through comprehensive transport design yet the expansion of buses routes and to railway terminals are not improved. The main issue is due to a lack of knowledge of the advantage of public network planning and the effect it has on economic growth since products and services are delayed on the congested roads. Even with the City of Melbourne having extensive transport that was designed decades ago, the increasing population in the suburbs requires more buses, rail and highways to extend from the existing ones. The focus attributed to economic and engineering of the urban public transport system is relatively poorly documented, which might facilitate new roads designs and operations. Research Questions

URBAN PLANNING 3 - Our research will prove that; - Why improved bus services needed in the outer Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. - Should Melbourne City build a railway line in suburbs for the people to reach the bus station on time? Background information The public transport has been a problem in Melbourne. The main aspect making the issue a challenge is the governance and executive body of public transport system as it is an indispensable constituent of urban development along with its management. The issue of suburb transport has been there since the time of wagons and horse transport, and due to advancing technology, motor vehicles need an extensive and quality term act roads for traffic (Johnson, Andrews and Warner, 2017). However, Melbourne City failure to document the engineering and infrastructure long term plan has been a hindrance. Most of the metropolitan strategies along

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
