About this book

In recent years the development and maintenance of transport systems and infrastructure has moved increasingly to the fore of the political agenda. The result has been a greater intensity of debate on transport matters than ever before, together with the emergence of new directions for transport policy and provision.

Eminent contributors from around the United Kingdom address the impressive range of intra-urban transport initiatives currently being considered. Congestion charging, the role of the private sector in funding and project promotion, management of private vehicle usage, and the increasing and changing role of public transport are all dealt with. The experience of the transport providers, planners and engineers collected in this book shows that urban transport provision is key to achieving economic, social and environmental goals for cities in the UK, and therefore has significance around the world.
