In recent years the development and maintenance of transport systems and infrastructure has moved increasingly to the fore of the political agenda. The result has been a greater intensity of debate on transport matters than ever before, together with the emergence of new directions for transport policy and provision. Eminent contributors from around the United Kingdom address the impressive range of intra-urban transport initiatives currently being considered.

When the author first moved to Southampton from Middlesex in 1985, he thought it was rather like a provincial town in comparison to London and its outer suburbs. But already things were beginning to change, and even before the end of the 1980s the old Victorian docks had been redeveloped into Ocean Village - a mixture of marina, two- or three storey residential housing, retail, catering and leisure facilities. This was soon followed by a similar, smaller redevelopment of nearby Town Quay, and two new purpose-built roofed-in shopping centres, the Bargate Centre, extending parallel to East Street and Hanover Buildings; and the Marlands Centre, connecting Above Bar Street with Portland Terrace and Civic Centre Road. Throughout this period, and into the next decade, a succession of ambitious projects were mooted - some, like the city centre monorail or the roofing-over of Guildhall Square and part of Above Bar Street, never materialised. Others, like the redevelopment of the 'Retail Village', between the Western Esplanade and West Quay Road or the huge West Quay Shopping Centre, opened in 2000, have completely transformed the city. From a rather insular port town, with what can only be described as very dreary post-war architecture and unimaginative civic planning, in less then three decades Southampton has become truly a vibrant, modern, bustling commercial city. The last fifteen years has also seen an extensive - and much needed - residential redevelopment, bringing life back to the lower High Street, Briton Street, Terminus Terrace and the Chapel/Crosshouse district. This book attempts to record something of what has been lost, and what has been gained in the last thirty years of progress and change.

Better urban transport systems and the need for a healthier environment are continuous requirements that create a fertile atmosphere for original ideas, innovative approaches and applications of advanced technologies, their tests and evaluations in practice. Moreover, there is a growing need for integration with IT systems and applications to improve safety and efficiency. Meanwhile, the substantial growth of maritime shipping has resulted in large transported quantities around the world, creating a demand for innovative solutions for ports and fleets. The apparently parallel topics of Urban Transport and Maritime Transport meet in the transport and environmental management of coastal cities, both being affected positively and negatively by landslide and seaside traffic. Maritime Transport is highly interconnected with rail, road and air services, as well as inland waterways. Each of these must therefore operate complimentary of one another to maximise efficiency and respond rapidly to variable economic and political contingencies. The variety of topics covered in this volume reflects the complex interaction of transport systems with their environment and the need to establish integrated strategies. The goal is to arrive at optimal socio-economic solutions while reducing the negative environmental impacts of transportation systems typically by interdisciplinary approaches.
