Local authorities and engineers are under pressure to provide sustainable and integrated transport systems that improve accessibility and reduce congestion. Prioritising schemes and gaining funding are just some of the challenges that need to be overcome.

The drive to find new and innovative solutions for congestion management has been lead by road user pricing schemes, but what other options are there? How do local transport plans fit in with regional spatial strategies and how can local authorities and consultants overcome planning issues?
