The replication of the long term impacts of transport on the environment requires that the land use changes consequent on transport improvements to be known. This paper addresses the prediction of the variations in the land use patterns and environmental impacts of changes in Adelaide's transport system. The LAND model is used to investigate growth, in Adelaide for the period 1971 to 1991. It replicates this growth comparing the models prediction with census, transport and environmental data. Future variations in transport and land use patterns (up until 2001) are input into the model and the transport and environmental consequences of these changes investigated. The paper concludes with comments relating to potential changes in Adelaide.
