Traffic Jam: Ten Years of 'Sustainable' Transport in the UK



Docherty I & Shaw J (eds.) (2008) Traffic Jam: Ten Years of 'Sustainable' Transport in the UK. Bristol: Policy Press. https://policy.bristoluniversitypress.co.uk/traffic-jam

This informed and lively book offers a timely analysis of the UK government's sustainable - or subsequently 'integrated' - transport policy 10 years after the publication of "A New Deal for Transport: Better for Everyone". Written by prominent transport experts and with a foreword by Christian Wolmar, the book identifies the modest successes and, sadly, the far more significant failures in government policy over the last decade. The authors also uncover why it has proved so difficult to adopt a more sustainable approach to transport and break Britain's love-affair with the car.
