Travel guide

Alan Baxter & Associates has prepared for the Department of Transport, Environment and the Regions a good practice guide to complement Design Bulletin 32 on residential roads and footpaths. DB32 is well known to every highway engineer and housing architect but it is increasingly felt, says Baxter, that it has been used in a dogmatic and unimaginative way. The new guide, Places, streets and movement, is intended to reverse that tendency. It emphasises how the integration of transport and land use can have a crucial influence on how people travel for short journeys and shows how priority can be given to travel on foot, bicycle or public transport, rather than car.

Price is 20 and it is published by DETR (ISBN 1 85112 113-7).
