Product Description

Review

"should be on every consultant’s, politician’s and planner’s desk and in the library of every institution where transport is seriously studied" ( Logistic and Transport Focus , March 2004) "This book outlines the political and implementation questions relating to transport policy delivery in the UK. Despite good intentions and a radical policy agenda this book reveals the Labour Government has failed to reduce the need to travel and to improve travel choice. Society has become more car dependent, levels of congestion and unreliability have increased, and the goal of sustainable transport has disappeared. The contributors to this book systematically document and assess the record of the Government on transport over the last six years." ––David Banister, University College London "This book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in UK transport policy. It debunks, in forensic detail, the myth that the government has a coherent strategy for transport." ––Christian Wolmar, author of Broke Rails – How Privatisation Wrecked Britain’s Railways "This book is valuable not only to transport geographers and the growing literature on sustainable transport, but to anyone interested in how government promises fail to come to fruition." ( The Geographical Journal )
