I am a regular reader of World Streets. I also pass along articles from the website to my graduate students.
The work is of high quality and it puts us in touch with other researchers and practitioners in the field of sustainable development and transport.
It provides a much-needed service and cuts through the media overload to the essentials.
And in 2016, seven years after the appearance of its first edition in spring 2009, it’s as needed as ever.
