FUTURE TRANSPORT - THE IMPORTANCE OF SAVING FUEL

The planning of transport for the next decade should be treated as part of complete design philosophy embracing not just transport. Ten years is too short a period over which to consider transport systems in isolation from other factors. In the short term environmental and energy supply considerations have an enormous influence on what should be done. Above all, it must be remembered that transport adds nothing directly to the quality of life and goods, but can add appreciably to their cost if ill-conceived. Clearly the direction that transport for the next decade should follow must involve the more efficient use of fuel to reduce costs and more careful selection of systems to improve the environment.
