Transport is important throughout the world as a means of trade, mobility and is essential to quality of life, but as population increases, so do the problems of congestion, air and noise pollution, greenhouse gas emissions.
Everyday thousands of vehicles use the road network to travel from places of production to places of attraction. Some of these destinations can attract a great number of vehicles, therefore creating huge traffic congestion issues and universities are a prime example of where this situation can be observed.
This report provides an insight into the issues of traffic congestion and at the University of Queensland. It will look at ways of solving this by employing sustainable transport solutions.
The report will analyse various literature on the subject from all over the world, along with the collection of traffic and survey data regarding the University of Queensland, followed by a suggestion of strategies of which to promote sustainable transport and give better access to the University of Queensland.
