Abstract


The regional transport policy is an essential factor for planned growth in rural areas of the developing nations. It was found that rural sub-regions were struggling with the problem of transport inaccessibility, which was one of the primary reasons of their physical and socioeconomic retardation. The absence of transport policy could be the reason behind such upset, which erupted because of the nonexistence of information system, essentially needed for the data handling and management. Therefore, the goal of this study is to develop Planning Information System (PIS), compatible for rural planning agencies. The data were taken from the document of “Hyderabad Master Plan 2001-2015,” Sindh, Pakistan. The “Teradata” and “Visual Basics” were selected to design and develop PIS for many of their advantages. The PIS was developed successfully, and research findings revealed that information technologies could assist planning authorities in saving-out their precious data. The study’s outcome could support planning agencies to mitigate the accessibility issues with timely implementation of the transport policy proposals.
