Abstract

This book has explored the financial and economic constraints within which transport policy is made (Part IV), as well as the planning systems at local and national level which allow both environmental and economic considerations to be assessed and given proper weight in the taking of decisions about particular schemes (Part III). The networks of policy-makers and those who seek to influence them at local, national and supranational levels of government have been identified (Part II). These complex structures and institutional arrangements reflect the complexity of the pressures and influences which have to be reconciled in the formulation of transport policy. Having laid out the pitch, explained the rules of the game, and provided notes on the players, it is now time to return to a review of the key issues and policy options which need to be addressed, as transport policy, shaped by these actors and limited by these constraints, moves into a third millennium in which more people and more goods will want to travel further and faster than ever before.
