TRAFFIC AND TRANSPORT IN RELATIONSHIP WITH SOCIOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENTS

VERKEER EN VERVOER IN RELATIE TOT MAATSCHAPPELIJKE ONTWIKKELINGEN

The role of traffic and transport in their relationship with sociological developments is outlined. The historical phenomena which have caused this are mentioned. The spatial dispersion for transport and a number of other sociological functions as these have developed during recent years in our society, and the effects of a clearly visible economic recession, together with the higher prices of energy-intensive products and services are discussed. For the near future there will be a discrepancy between the demand of transport and the development of the operating costs. Budgetary applications in the private and governmental field, as well as a further consideration of the spatial and urban planning structure will be the inevitable consequences. Re-urbanisation, the bigger concentration of working and living environments and the connecting land and urban development are possible directives for a solution. A more integral approach by all parties in a narrow correlation with a more intensive cooperation of the traffic and transport science is essential. (TRRL)
