Preparing for a CMP

Where to Start?

Each city is likely to be at a different stage in its urban transport planning. For example, some cities have already developed a CTTS, a CMP or a part of an urban transport plan, while others have not yet started. Therefore, all cities should identify the starting point and required tasks by referring to the following flowchart (Figure 7).

Example Work Schedule

Following the work flow set out above, an example work schedule and timeline for preparing a CMP is shown in Table 2. The average period for preparation of an entire CMP is estimated to be about 12 months for the study areas with population of about 4 million. However, the schedule will vary depending on each city’s position, including the city size, availability of data and cost constraints (e.g., duration of the CMP preparation for the study areas with 1 million plus may be about 4 months, and with 2 million plus about 6 months).

Example Table of Contents for a CMP Document

Based on the work flow described above, an example Table of Contents for a CMP document is shown below. It is recommended that the CMP include each of these sections and subsections. Skipping sections may undermine the viability of the CMP, but additional sections or other useful information that enhances its objectives may be included.
