Transport in the twenty-first century represents a significant challenge at the global and the local scale. Aided by over sixty clear illustrations, Peter Headicar disentangles this complex, modern issue in five parts, offering critical insights into:

  • the nature of transport
  • the evolution of policy and planning
  • policy instruments
  • planning procedures
  • the contemporary agenda.

Distinctive features include the links forged throughout between transport and spatial planning, which are often neglected.

Designed as an essential text for transport planning students and as a source of reference for planning practitioners, it also furthers understanding of related fields such as urban and regional planning, geography, environmental studies and public policy. Based in the postgraduate course the author developed at Oxford Brookes University, this indispensable text draws on a lifetime of professional experience in the field.
