Transport is a major cause of environmental impact. Whether it is air pollution, noise, encroachment on the green belt or climate change, it is widely accepted that further expansion of transport must be balanced against the environmental damage. This programme takes a detailed look at this relationship, and equips students with practical approaches to environmentally sound transport planning. Students study the core principles of transport planning and then apply these to the environmental issues.
