Abstract

This paper proposes that while many plans and

solutions to the transport problems of the 21st Century

have been mooted, very few have succeeded in

significantly improving the situation within Europe. It

is suggested that many schemes face problems at the

project implementation stage due to adverse public

and/or political reaction. This paper incorporates a

series of vignettes, several of which are based on indepth

interviews with practitioners directly involved

in the implementation of 'radical'transport schemes

from around the world in an attempt to draw lessons as

to how they overcame this, not least in terms of how

the implementation of alternative strategies by

European policy-makers could be shaped and adopted

world-wide.
