Current Issue: March 2007

The theme for this issue is transport. It seems that at present we can hardly get away from the topic. Reports on climate change cite transport as a leading contributor to global warming and there has been a public outcry in the UK over related airport taxes. The Downing Street website was brought to a halt last month by attempts to sign a petition against ‘pay as you use’ road pricing, and much fuss was made over Tony Blair’s e-mailed response. Meanwhile, the congestion charge zone in London has been extended, leading to discussions over its usefulness in combating congestion. All this just goes to show how important transport is to our modern lives.
