Integration and coordination between regional/urban plans and transportation plans: the case of the rail transit investments in Gaziantep

Yaman, Yusuf Cem
Transport and urban development are in a constant interaction with each other. Hence, urban planning and transport planning should be carried out in integration and coordination. Best practice cases in the world reveal that this integrated and coordinated approach should be established from regional plans to metropolitan and urban plans. When strong integration is maintained, transport investments can become effective tools in helping realize urban and regional plan strategies. Within this framework, the thesis reviews policy documents and legislations in Turkey in terms of integrated planning of regional/urban and transport plans. Gaziantep case is analyzed in detail within the same perspective.


Politics of urban transportation local, national and international dynamics case of Ankara and Eskişehir road corridor
Öncü Yıldız, Mevlüde Ayça; Babalık, Ela; Department of Urban Policy Planning and Local Governments (2015)
This study aims to identify the factors that influence the development of Ankara’s urban transport system and to assess the effects of influencing groups and actors (referred to as assemblages in this study) on urban and transportation development of Eskişehir Road Corridor in relation with economic development, political decisions, institutional and legal frameworks. The thesis adopts a multi-level analysis method for researching influencing developments and assemblage relationships shaping urban transport...
Traffic assignment in transforming networks case study : Ankara
Zorlu, Fikret; Türel, Ali; Department of City and Regional Planning (2006)
This study investigates the relevance of dynamic traffic assignment models under uncertainty. In the last years researchers have dealt with advanced traffic control systems since road provision is not regarded as a proper solution to relieve congestion. Dynamic assignment which is an essential component of investment planning is regarded as a new research area in the field of urban transportation. In this study the performance of dynamic traffic assignment method, which incorporates time dependent flow, is ...
Public transport improvement policies : assessment of the role of route and fare integration, modal reorganization with special emphasis to İzmir case
Öncü, Mevlüde Ayça; Babalık, Ela; Department of Urban Policy Planning and Local Governments (2007)
Public transport improvement and new public transport management approaches are accepted as the most effective tools in order to cope with the urban transportation problem threatening sustainable urban life and efficient functioning of urban areas. The need for new solutions to replace, or support, costly new capacities created two new concepts at the two ends of the transportation phenomenon; Travel Demand Management (TDM) on the demand side and Transportation System Management (TSM) at the supply side. Th...
Computational urban analyticsfor walkability: Çankaya, Ankara case
Ardıç, Sabiha İrem; Gürsel Dino, İpek; Department of Architecture (2021-2-08)
The complexity of the built environment and the number of components acting upon the cities are increasing and in constant transformation. Analyzing the quality of urban spaces is becoming difficult due to the scale andlevel of interconnectivity between urban data. However, advances in technologies, particularly in computational urban analytics methods, have the potential to facilitate the collection, measurement, and analysis of urban metrics relevant to urban design. W...
Evaluation of regional railway investment with urban development dynamics: The case of IZBAN in Izmir
Kul, Fahrettin; Yetişkul Şenbil, Emine; Department of City and Regional Planning (2021-11-29)
With the technological developments, railway transportation has become an important part of urban transport. Besides increasing the accessibility in the city, the railway creates demographic, economic, and spatial effects. In planning, railways are used to increase or direct urban development. This study evaluates the railway investment as an exogenous effect on the city. Furthermore, this study examines the railway’s as a complementary factor of the urban development trends. Urban development is analyzed w...
