This text offers a thoughtful critique of existing methodology and policy, raising issues, providing facts, explaining linkages and stimulating debate. Transport choices must be changed if we are to cope with sustainability and climate change but that may only be done if we understand how the whole transport system works.
Barry Hutton, now retired, was the founding Head of the Department of Town and Country Planning at the University of the West of England. In parallel with his academic work, he was a consultant appearing as a professional witness at many planning inquiries. As a member of the design team for Mosborough, Sheffield, he wrote a computer simulation of gridded road and public transport networks that was to be selectively adapted for Milton Keynes. He went on to help establish the Egyptian National Institute of Transport, was part of a project researching and creating a computer prediction of the speed-sensitive fuel consumption rates of cars in Edinburgh, and accepted an invitation from the United Nations to prepare a 'Sustainable, Multi-Modal Transport Plan' for Kosovo.
