ABSTRACT
Problems encountered by local authorities in Wales, after they first published their first local Transport Plans in 2000 were discussed. In particular, this article considers the process and content of the local transport plans and examines some of the innovatory measures and schemes that are being proposed. Uncertainties regarding funding and limited staffing resources in many councils have presented obstacles in both the production of the plans and the future delivery of transport strategies. The plans aim to give effect to the national policies with a strong emphasis on improvements to public transport, cycling and walking. There is less enthusiasm for measures to restrict car use.
