This book starts from the how and why of the renewed interest in modern tramway technology or light rapid transit (LRT). An attempt has been made to build up a current picture of the state of the art, in which the most relevant features of LRT as a public transport system are highlighted, including the reasons for its rebirth, traffic management developments, town planning, environmental and system building considerations. A closing chapter assembles the most important criteria for financial, socio-economic, commercial and political evaluation, which are, wherever possible, quantified. /TRRL/
