The author summarizes three recently published papers which add support to the opinion that the solution to urban traffic congestion lies in improving public transport rather than in building more roads. The first paper also calls for the coordination of public expenditure on the different modes of interurban transport, including rail and water, as well as roads. The papers are: 1. "Public Expenditure on Transport", the first report of the Expenditure Committee, Environment Sub-committee, of the House of Commons for session 1974; 2. A summary report on the Stevenage Superbus Experiment; 3. A discussion paper by Tyson, WJ on the "Economic Implications for Transport Planning of the New Grant System and Transport Policies and Programmes". /TRRL/
