This issue of Current Topics includes over 75 abstracts of reports, conference papers, books and journal articles which focus on sustainable, environmentally friendly transport policy issues, especially in urban areas of the world. Amongst the specific topics dealt with are measures to restrain car transport, to reduce harmful vehicle emissions, and to control the demand for parking. External transport costs, freight transport modes, land use policy and the encouragement of the use of public transport are amongst the topics covered. These items have been selected from the material added to the Transport Research Laboratory’s Library Database in 2004 and 2005. Much of the relevant English language published literature from the UK, USA, Australia and Europe is included; some of the non-UK literature is included courtesy of the OECD International Transport Research Documentation (ITRD) database.
