The space requirements of transport networks are reviewed and problems arising out of space shortage are analysed in road, rail, harbour and airport land use. Possible space saving options from within the transport system include: collective as opposed to individual transport; underground as opposed to surface collective transport; pedestrian zones as opposed to space for vehicles; and traditional as opposed to new technologies. Land use and transport planning should aim at reducing both the need to travel and the length of the journeys to be made. The number of the covering abstract of the symposium is IRRD no. 221684. /TRRL/
