Transport and Sustainable Regional Development
Transport plays a pivotal role in the dynamics of our society, not only in economic terms but also in a spatial setting. New driving forces such as technological progress, privatisation and deregulation exert a structuring impact on transport systems and on their related consequences induding environmental sustainability and urban form. The paper presents empirical results from a scenario experiment among Dutch transport experts, in which expected and desired spatial and environmental consequences of new transport systems up to the year 2030 are depicted. The paper shows that the probability of achieving the objective of sustainable mobility is rather low.
