Contemporary Issues in Multimodal Transport(ation) Planning

Transport Modes, Hong Kong, 17 June 2007.

Recently, I delivered a guest lecture on contemporary issues in transport for the "Emerging Crises in Multi-modal Transport and Digital Transformation and Smart Supply Chain” for AcademyGlobal's CILT International Diploma students.

I adopted an approach to conceptualising multimodal transport and some of the issues that are invariably experienced by liberal democracies where political and property rights restrict optimal solutions, resulting in 'satisficing' different interest groups in building infrastructure.
