Land Use Transport Interaction (LUTI) Modelling | Sept 2020
Date: Wednesday 16 September 2020
Time: 12.30pm - 1.30pm AEST
Tickets: AITPM Members: Free | Non Members: $20
REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED
The relationship between urban development and transport is not simple and one way, but a complex two-way relationship. However, an integrated approach to the modelling of transport and land use has been rarely made, and common practice (particularly in Australia!) has been to model both phenomena independently.
Join us for this webinar where we will talk to experts in the field of land use transport interaction (LUTI) modelling as well as hear from Auckland Forecasting Centre in New Zealand where they will share their own experiences in using an integrated LUTI model.
The session will be divided into four sections as per below:
An introduction to land use-transport interaction models - Stuart Donovan (PhD Candidate - Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam)
A case study in LUTI modelling– lessons learnt from Auckland Forecasting Centre – Jojo Valero (Auckland Forecasting Centre, New Zealand)
Where to from here? LUTI modelling into the future – Dr James Lennox (Centre of Policy Studies, Victoria University)
Moderated panel session to provide an opportunity for our speakers to field questions from the floor. Hosted by Nick Veitch

Stuart Donovan | PhD Candidate, Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam
Stuart is an economist and engineer with 15 years’ experience working as a consultant in Australia and New Zealand. Stuart’s core areas of expertise include spatial, urban, and transport economics; multi-modal transport planning; and strategic policy. Stuart is currently completing his PhD in Spatial Economics part-time while working. In his PhD, he is researching agglomeration economies, regional economic development, and land use and transport modelling.
Jojo Valero | Auckland Forecasting Centre, New Zealand
Jojo Valero is the Transport Demand Modelling Leader at the Auckland Forecasting Centre – a partnership between Waka Kotahi (New Zealand Transport Agency), Auckland Council and Auckland Transport that is responsible for transport modelling in the Auckland region. He is responsible for the development and application of AFC’s strategic land use and transport demand models.
Prior to this, Jojo was involved in the development of traffic assignment models featuring intersection capacity updates. He was project manager for the Auckland Transport Model (ATM2) project - the development of Auckland’s fully integrated land use and transport models. Jojo has over 25 years of traffic and transport planning, engineering and modelling experience in both the private and public sectors.
Jojo is a keen fisherman, plays tennis and basketball, and has recently taken up road cycling. He is married and blessed with two (adult) boys.
Dr James Lennox | Centre for Policy Studies, Victoria University
Dr James Lennox is a Senior Research Fellow and currently leads the urban economic modelling programme at Victoria University’s Centre of Policy Studies (CoPS). He joined CoPS in 2015 following two years working at the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei in Venice, where he held a Marie Curie Fellowship and worked on the economics of climate policies.
At CoPS, Dr Lennox has pioneered the development and application of large-scale computable spatial general equilibrium (SCGE) models in Australia. He has worked extensively with the Department of Premier and Cabinet, New South Wales to model the spatial economic impacts of Faster Rail and with Infrastructure Victoria on modelling supporting their 30 Year Strategy Update. His work in Victoria has included collaboration on a closed-loop Land Use Transport Interaction modelling system that successfully coupled CoPS’ VU Cities-Victoria model with the Victorian Integrated Transport Model. Earlier this year, Dr Lennox developed a new, uniquely detailed SCGE model Spatial Interactions Within and Between Regions and Cities in Australia (SIRCA). SIRCA distinguishes many occupations, many industries and 2255 spatial zones Australia-wide. Dr Lennox’s study on the consequences of increased telecommuting in a post-COVID-19 world was recently published by CoPS and was the first application of the SIRCA model.
