9781849713900: Planning Sustainable Transport

Transport choices must be transformed if we are to cope with sustainability and climate change, but this can only be done if we understand how complex transport systems work. Straightforward choices are never made between one transport mode and another; door-to-door movements of both people and freight use combinations of different modes of transport.

This book offers a cross-disciplinary overview of transport systems and the ways in which they interact with urban and regional planning decisions and environmental issues. It offers a thoughtful critique of existing methodology and policy, raising issues, providing facts, explaining linkages and, particularly, stimulating debate. The book methodically explores the definitions, trends, problems, objectives and policies of transport planning. In particular the author looks at land use as a major determinant of the nature and extent of the demand for transport, concluding that the management of land use has to be a key element of any sustainable transport policy.

Planning Sustainable Transport will be essential reading for today’s transport specialists, planners and property developers. It will also be useful to postgraduate students in planning and related disciplines.

About the Author:

Barry Hutton, now retired, was the founding Head of the Department of Town and Country Planning at the University of the West of England. In parallel with his academic work, he was a consultant appearing as a professional witness at many planning inquiries. As a member of the design team for Mosborough, Sheffield, he wrote a computer simulation of gridded road and public transport networks that was to be selectively adapted for Milton Keynes. He went on to help establish the Egyptian National Institute of Transport, was part of a project researching and creating a computer prediction of the speed-sensitive fuel consumption rates of cars in Edinburgh, and accepted an invitation from the United Nations to prepare a ‘Sustainable, Multi-Modal Transport Plan’ for Kosovo.
