Transport planning has come under ever more intensive scrutiny in recent times, particularly as a result of the environmental externalities associated with increasing distances travelled by many in Western society by private car. Recognition of this situation and the apparent impossibility of providing for ever-increasing road travel has led to the emergence of a 'new realism' in dealing with traffic growth and transport issues generally. This paper examines the penetration of such a view, taking a case study of the Tyne and Wear conurbation, supported by three other illustrations. It concludes that the penetration of the 'new realism' is, in some cases appropriately, highly variable both organisationally and geographically.
