From the Publisher"should be on every consultant’s, politician’s andplanner’s desk and in the library of every institution wheretransport is seriously studied" (Logistic and TransportFocus, March 2004)
"This book outlines the political and implementation questionsrelating to transport policy delivery in the UK. Despite goodintentions and a radical policy agenda this book reveals the LabourGovernment has failed to reduce the need to travel and to improvetravel choice. Society has become more car dependent, levels ofcongestion and unreliability have increased, and the goal ofsustainable transport has disappeared. The contributors to thisbook systematically document and assess the record of theGovernment on transport over the last six years."
—David Banister, University College London
"This book is essential reading for anyone with an interest inUK transport policy. It debunks, in forensic detail, the myth thatthe government has a coherent strategy for transport."
—Christian Wolmar, author of Broke Rails – HowPrivatisation Wrecked Britain’s Railways
"This book is valuable not only to transport geographers and thegrowing literature on sustainable transport, but to anyoneinterested in how government promises fail to come to fruition."(The Geographical Journal)
