Urban transport: moving from the 19th century to the 21st century concerns

Most countries in the Commonwealth are involved in planning urban transportation futures to combat climate change. The proposed technical fixes will have little impact unless urban transportation planners resist the move toward infrastructure development that fixes our future to high energy use and CO2 emissions. Pressure for changing policies will be successful if the majority of city residents can be convinced that their current and future mobility/accessibility needs can be met at lower risk levels, at lower costs and with wider availability of choices by providing streets that are safer from crime and road traffic injuries.
