Environmental effects and the planning of urban transportation systems

Nicholas Patricios

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The main elements of an urban transportation system which can have significant environmental impacts are urban freeways, surface railways, and elevated mass transit facilities such as monorail. These all have similar effects on the urban environment although they vary in their actual impact. Since urban freeways are causing the greatest concern, the author uses them to illustrate the effects of urban transportation systems on the environment. The paper first reviews the concept of urban freeways, then identifies the reason for the growing opposition to this form of highway. This is followed by an analysis of the deleterious effects of urban freeways. In conclusion, the environmental approach to planning and designing freeways in urban areas is described.
