TRANSPORT: A VISION FOR THE FUTURE - A REPORT WHICH ATTEMPTS TO PROVIDE A VISION FOR THE FUTURE OF TRANSPORT IN BRITAIN OVER THE NEXT 30 YEARS

This report attempts to provide a vision for the future of transport in Britain over the next 30 years. The research, on which it is based, aimed to find out how much consensus there was within the community of those actively involved in transport or related professions. Samples of people in this community were asked what they considered likely to happen in the next 30 years, what should happen, and how the changes that they desired could happen. The project's results are especially topical in relation to the new UK Government's policies for integrated transport and the continuing debate about transport. The study was conducted between January 1997 and July 1999, and had two main elements. Its first part reviewed publicly available visions for the future development of transport. Its second part conducted in-depth interviews with actors in the transport field, to assess their perceptions of the future of transport. There were 44 interviews in the national survey, 33 interviews in Leeds, 34 interviews in York, and nine interviews in Chesterfield. The three local areas were chosen to represent urban areas of different sizes. The survey design and methodology is described. For each survey, the problems, visions, measures, impacts, barriers, solutions, and reality are discussed, with extensive quotations from participants. Eleven areas of consensus are outlined.
