About this book

The study on which this work is based was undertaken between 1991 and 1995 and depicts the state of transport policy and practice in Europe, Britain and the Netherlands during this period. The text examines how the concept of sustainability has been interpreted in transport and environmental policy at the European, national and local level. The approaches of Britain and the Netherlands to transport and environmental policy are compared. With the use of case studies of transport corridors it illustrates how different policy aproaches affect choices and decisions taken at the project level. It demonstrates the advantages of a strategic planning approach which is objective-led and which sets out speciifc targets for sustainability. The book concludes by outlining an environment-based approach for transport planning.
