Congestion and Pollution in a Rapidly Expanding City of South-East Asia: The Case of Bangkok

  • Kunchit Phiu-nual
Part of the Transportation Research, Economics and Policy book series (TRES)


The transport system is one of the main users of land in a city and its task is to serve the movement needs of other land users. But since the other land users depend vitally on transport, the location and density of their activities — and hence their movements — are largely determined by the location and efficiency of the transport system itself. An appraisal of the transport system must therefore include not only its effectiveness in meeting actual traffic demands but, also its impact on the location of activities which gives rise to those traffic demands.
