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.
