Traffic, traffic, traffic!


With all the fuss last week about traffic congestion we thought we would look at traffic issues this week.

The problem of traffic congestion is well known, most people have experienced it. The question is what to do about it?

The traditional approach is to carry out road ‘improvements’ including increasing road capacity, altering the configuration at road junctions. Other approaches include encouraging walking and cycling as alternative modes of transport and planning so that people live closer to their work.

We shall look at these and also more radical and innovative means of reducing car use and congestion.
