Paper presented at the 6th Annual Congress of the Netherlands Research School for Transport, Infrastructure and Logistics. The Congress took place at The Hague, December 12th 2000. This paper was published in the TRAIL Proceedings series (Delft: TRAIL Research School, October 30th 2000).
Starting from their observation that in our society matters of spatial planning and of traffic and transport have become intertwined, and from their assessment that improvements can be made in the management of processes aimed at spatial investments, TRAIL and TNO Inro have formulated the Ph.D.project Strategy and project in the organization of planning and decision-making. Within the broader context of this Ph.D.- project the Dutch situation presents the introduction of the high-speed train, and the government program of 'Nieuwe Sleutelprojecten'. Here questions accumulate concerning the vitality of the urban fabric, rail transport innovation, and real estate development. The required process management tackling these spatial investments is in need of a framework from which its governance instruments can be implemented. The paper focusses on the redevelopment of railway station areas from the perspective of a geography of networks.
