Highway and Urban Environment
Samlingsverk (redaktörskap), 2007
Today, half of the world’s population lives in urban areas and the rapid urbanization we are seeing is expected to continue in the next decades. The growth of urban areas around the world presents many challenges and needs to be supported by the development of adequate and sustainable infrastructures.
This work offers comprehensive coverage of critical issues on the highway and urban environment which are key to understanding sustainability in the world's expanding urban areas. It offers a highly relevant round-up of the proceeding of the Highway and Urban Environment Symposium held in Nicosia, Cyprus, last year. The Proceedings describe recent research on vehicle emissions, air quality, urban runoff quality and treatment, contaminated areas, traffic management and sustainable transport strategies.
This book is ideal for all those working in related fields, from research engineers to urban planners and transport officers.
