To understand the relationship between highway investments and national economic goals, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) sponsors economic Size: 1MB.
The European Union’s Fifth Environmental Action Programme states that transport is “vital to the distribution of goods and services, and to trade and to regional development”, but argues that current trends towards increasing transport demand are likely to result in “greater inefficiency, congestion, pollution, wastage of time and value, danger to life and general economic loss.
On the basis of its investigations and deliberations, the committee reached the following conclusions and recommendations. CONCLUSION: Most road projects today involve modifications to existing roadways, and the planning, operation, and maintenance of such projects often are opportunities for improving ecological conditions.
A growing body of information describes such practices for improving aquatic and terrestrial habitats. Books at Amazon.

The bill was lobbied for heavily by a coalition of vehicle, oil, tire, cement, steel, and union interests and ironically, given its carbon footprint. The geometric design of roads is the branch of highway engineering concerned with the positioning of the physical elements of the roadway according to standards and constraints.
The basic objectives in geometric design are to optimize efficiency and safety while minimizing cost and environmental damage. Geometric design also affects an emerging fifth objective called "livability," which is.
Location theory, in economics and geography, theory concerned with the geographic location of economic activity; it has become an integral part of economic geography, regional science, and spatial on theory addresses the questions of what economic activities are located where and why.
