'This Handbook is an excellent reference for practice and research in -- transport and development. The reviewer wishes to recommend it strongly for both academic research and professional practice in infrastructure project management.' - Zhen Chen, Management, Procurement and Law
'This timely compendium offers some of the best, up-to-date knowledge on how transport and development, richly defined, jointly shape each other. Written by some of the most authoritative voices in the field and encyclopedic in its coverage, the Handbook on Transport and Development brings together fresh, grounded insights from across the globe, at multiple geographic scales, and for everything from bikeways to fast inter-city trains. It is a wonderful reference and must-have library addition to anyone who cares about charting sustainable urban, regional, and mobility futures.' -- Robert Cervero, University of California, Berkeley, US
'For more than a century cities have been urged to integrate the two fields of urban planning and transport planning. But too often these professional fields have evolved in their own institutional silos. Now they are beginning to grow together again in a new joint practice. This book will be a foundational text for the real practice of transport and urban development planning. It contains contributions from all the principal scholars in the field, and examines all the main issues and fields of inquiry. It does fine justice to the legacy of Professors Sir Peter Hall and Piet Rietveld. To practitioners and researchers I say, "Have this book to hand on your shelf".' -- Nicholas Low, University of Melbourne, Australia
'The role of transport in the development of cities and regions is a topic of immense importance. The editors have brought together authors from all over the world with experience of the methods needed to assess the impact of transport and analysis of the evidence of a varied range of projects. The result is a genuine Handbook of the state of the art, but with clear insights into future problems. It is highly recommended reading for researchers, policy makers and politicians.' -- Roger Vickerman, University of Kent, UK
'This handbook draws together deep insights into the multi faceted relationships between urban development and transport It should be essential reading for anyone researching or teaching transport and development relationships.' -- Journal of Transport Geography
