THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TRANSPORT AND THE VIABILITY OF CENTRAL AND INNER URBAN AREAS

The problems of the inner city since the last war have arisen from the policy of decentralisation and increasing mobility. The government has recognised the problem and issued a white paper, and an act of parliament has been passed to initiate measures to help the worst areas. This paper examines in detail the relationship between transport and the inner city, and recent changes in the city of Leeds. A computer model is used to examine the impact of the types of transport policies being advocated, and probable increases in transport costs over the next decade. (Author/TRRL)
