Building health assessed through environmental parameters after the OTS in the city centre of Oxford, UK
The Oxford Transport Strategy (OTS) implemented in the Oxford city centre in June 1999 had an environmental impact associated with reduced car traffic and improved air quality, particularly of SO2 and CO. The effect on reductions in atmospheric pollutants and improved air quality is examined in this article. By examining records of change associated with specific traffic records and mean annual measures of pollutants, including NO2, NOX, SO2, CO, O3 and PM10, it is possible to relate trends over 15 years (between 1997 and 2012) and evaluate the impacts on buildings.
This publication explores the forces that are shaping roads, now and in the future: climate change, urbanisation, technological innovation, demographic shifts and the changing behaviours of travellers.
This report provides an overview of how the Institution of Civil Engineers believes that the governance and resources for sub-national transport have held back the potential of our city regions. To resolve this, the report calls on policymakers from all political parties to embrace three overarching recommendations for the next Parliament.
Adaptation of transport to climate change in Europe: Challenges and options across transport modes and stakeholders
This report from the European Environment Agency explores current climate change adaptation practices concerning transport across European countries.
The transport sector is still generating excessive greenhouse gas emissions and harmful levels of air pollution and noise, according to the latest edition of the European Environment Agency’s annual report on environment and transport.
Special Eurobarometer reports are based on in-depth thematical studies carried out for various services of the European Commission or other EU Institutions and integrated in Standard Eurobarometer’s polling waves. This survey was commissioned to gather information from European citizens, understand their habits, hear their opinions and analyse their perceptions of transport related matters.
London’s air pollution could be reduced by over a third, carbon emissions cut by 80% and noise pollution reduced significantly, if it was to switch to only electric forms of heating and transportation by 2035, according to consultants WSP.
While the official consultation on the Mayor of London’s ambition to build two new separated cycle superhighways across the city has come to an end, this blog argues that those who are against the plans are still making their case strongly behind closed doors.
This website is a joint venture involving the Department for Transport and the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation. It is a paper-free technical library devised to help you find the up-to-date documents you need when planning, designing and operating road networks in the UK. The portal acts as a one-stop-shop depository of web links to core documents produced by a range of organisations. It will help you find specific documents you already know about but will also direct you to helpful information you may not previously been aware of.
