This research cluster focuses on promoting and advancing the efficient planning and delivery of transport and land use services within the urban environments focusing on Ghanaian and other African cities through the use of spatially integrated information and communication technology, emerging planning techniques, and smart cities model. A sustainable future urban space requires investments in human and social capital and transformation in transport system, and land use (spatial) planning to promote spatially integrated, socio-economic advancement and environmental protection in the anthropocene. The research focuses on the following areas:

 

Urban mobility; Urbanisation; Land use/spatial planning; Transport infrastructure and services; Transport and road safety; Traffic segregation and urban development; Contestations and management of urban environments; Intermediate mode of transport; Transport affordability and access; Transport terminal development; Intelligent transport system; Public transport system.
