Abstract

Traffic congestion at peak times has long been a problem facing cities in the UK. Latterly concern about combating congestion has been hightened by concerns over carbon emissions and poor air quality. In tackling these problems green innovations incorporating new technologies appear to have much to offer, although progress in implementing these sorts of innovation appears to have been slow. This case study on the efforts of one city to tackle these problems by pioneering a number of green innovations including the introduction of a light rail system employing trams known as Nottingham Express Transit (NET) as well as electric and gas-powered buses. The nature of these innovations is explored together with a detailed examination of how they came to be implemented and the impact they have had.
