Fifty years ago traffic congestion was virtually unknown in this country, or anywhere in the world. But since then we have seen a massive increase in car ownership and continuing demands for better and less crowded roads. This situation is also reflected in the daily movement of freight where complex demands have resulted in the use of road transport for the majority of services. During this relatively short period of time we have seen transport issues in all their various forms rise up the political agenda as the need to travel is now an inevitable part of our daily lives and the time and costs involved are massive and affect everybody. While huge sums have been spent on transport infrastructure, we are still a very long way from providing a 'multi modal' solution appropriate for the 21st Century. This situation is common throughout the world and this being the case, it is surprising, given both the importance of the issues and advances in technology, that nowhere has a model solution been achieved for others to emulate. Examining transport issues in the UK during the last fifty years, this collection of research papers commissioned by the Institution of Highways and Transportation determines why we have not been more successful and what lessons can usefully be learned to assist the decision makers of the future. We cannot do anything about what has come before, but we can learn a great deal from it and we can achieve much more in the future - with the advantage of hindsight.
