Traffic + urban areas + developing economies = ?

1 December 2016

The struggle Stellenbosch has with traffic is the symptom of a more general illness that negatively affects the quality of life of the inhabitants. In The Urban Transport Crisis in Emerging Economies the challenges regarding urban traffic felt by twelve developing economies – including South Africa – are investigated. Countries such as SA, Brazil, Mexico and Vietnam have all experienced large-scale urbanisation fairly recently. The lessons learnt from the changes in structure, motorisation and the resulting social, economic and environmental issues are discussed with authority. Emeritus prof. Fabio Todeschini and prof. Dave Dewar wrote the chapter on South Africa. Published as part of Springer’s The Urban Book Series.
