Synopsis

The UK population will reach 70 million by 2027. How will all these people get around? Is building more, wider roads really the solution? In this book, Steve Melia:

  • dispels long-standing transport myths;
  • looks at the successes of London and other UK and continental cities in providing 21st century transport;
  • and suggests solutions for a sustainable future.


By drawing on the experience of London, Bristol, Cambridge and other European towns, we can have cleaner and more pleasant places to live, and a more sustainable economy. The book is accessibly written, and is a must-read for the interested lay person as well as those involved in transport and urban planning.

In Volume 2, (forthcoming) Alan Cunningham considers the situation and solutions for the USA. Each volume can be read alone, or they can be read together to look at the wider global context.

About the Publisher

UIT Cambridge

UIT Cambridge

UIT was founded by Niall Mansfield in 1992 and incorporated in January 1993. Originally the company provided consultancy in computer networking and the Internet. Niall Mansfield had written several computer books for Addison-Wesley, and in 2003 Philip Hazel of Cambridge University, who occasionaly worked freelance for UIT, wanted to publish a new edition of the book about his Exim email software, that we had used in many large projects. That was the first book we published. Subsequently the company moved out of computer consulting, and is now devoted entirely to publishing. (Our origins are apparent because specialist computer books are still part of our focus.) Since 2008 we extended our remit, and our main focus now is publishing books on important and difficult issues, making them understandable to the layman. The first of these titles was the very successful Sustainable Energy - without the hot air ® by Professor David JC MacKay.
