Transport: How Much Can London Take?

The chapter is one of 13 covering all major aspects of London's economic, social and physical geography.

It highlights the pressures that the car has brought on a mostly pre-car city structure. It concludes that whilst the future of the city centre with its heavy public transport dominance is assured, the future of the suburbs in uncertain, especially how far the quality and equality of life will be sacrificed to demands for more access by car.
