Urban Transport without the hot air: Volume 1: Sustainable solutions for UK cities - without the hot air (Paperback)Steve Melia (author)
If you've ever studied, worked in or used transport, there's a good chance you'll have stopped one day and asked yourself ‘why?‘. With population numbers rising and more than three-quarters of the British population living in urban areas, cities are becoming congested – and the air increasingly stinky!
In Volume 1 of Urban Transport without the hot air, transport and planning specialist Steve Melia dispels long-standing myths surrounding transportation issues in the United Kingdom. From car ownership, public transport and cycling to airports and the belief that we're building too many flats, he discusses the challenges and values of urban planning.
This is also a practical book filled with sustainable solutions to improve the future of our transport system. By drawing on the experience of London, Bristol, Cambridge and other European towns, Steve argues that we can create cleaner and more pleasant places to live, and a more sustainable economy. It also includes evidence from both Steve's research, and studies carried out by respected academics and experts, providing reliable and informative insights on urban living.
Persuasive and accessibly written, and is a must-read for anyone interested or involved in transport and urban planning.
