The paper examines the impact of population growth and increased quality of living on the transportation problem, on a national and global basis. It assesses existing trends and considers future problems of long distance and urban transportation. Evidence is adduced showing that the road system in urban areas is at full stretch with the consequence that it is virtually impossible to implement an "all roads" policy. Modern developments, such as high speed rail and hovercraft vehicles, are considered in the belief that they could make an effective contribution towards a more comprehensive transportation strategy.
