When planning or redesigning the transport system for existing urban structures, the given layout of the settlement influences the options for the planner. A basic but important question needs to be answered at the outset: Should the plan replace or restore the existing buildings and transport infrastructure? In practice, this is usually a trade-off between the cost of these two options, and even more so if there are additional heritage aspects to be considered which may result in choosing an option, even if it is more expensive. This chapter focuses on the challenges, opportunities and solutions of transport and urban planning when there are heritage and redevelopment issues that need to preserve pre-existing older structures. The chapter draws on examples from cities, discusses the consequences of these developments, and uses these to provide guidance and recommendations for the future.
