Unbalanced traffic growth with urban sprawl, environmental problems, accidents and congestion require better coordinated planning, design and management of the urban scheme and transport plan. An integrated approach is introduced and with its most important features characterized. The state of the art of transport master planning in Europe is briefly reflected upon. SUTPs are increasingly necessary as a precondition to obtain funding for urban transport measures by EU and national authorities.
