For urban planners the nature of urban transport is pervading and complex. Its effects spill over into areas such as commercial, residential, public and open spaces, and the health, visual and aural environment. There are few people who do not have opinions on the subject, but ultimately the answer must lie in quantitative and even qualitative research. This is the challenge facing researchers and planners today.
Reflecting the wide range of study and research being carried out around the world today, this volume features papers presented at the sixth in a highly successful series of conferences focusing on Urban Transport and the Environment for the 21st Century. Over 50 contributions covering the following topics are included: Urban Transport Systems; Land Use; Freight; Waste Disposal; Planning, Funding and Management; Noise Studies; Environmental Aspects; and Safety and Pedestrianisation.
