Over the past few decades, the world's population has become increasingly concerned about the pollution caused by cars, whilst congestion has slowly brought traffic to a halt in the major cities, and transport planning has become increasingly controversial. Originally published in 1992, during a period of growth in environmental awareness, this title offers an analysis of the major challenges that the field of urban transport planning has faced.
