Local government has ambitious plans for upgrading the transport system of Greater Cambridge. But does the emerging approach add up to a coherent strategy capable of meeting the current and future needs of one of the fastest-growing regions of the UK? Luca Leone argues for a holistic vision, encompassing a hierarchy of integrated public transport modes, traffic restraint and pollution reduction measures, the expansion of cycling and walking, and the conservation and enhancement of the natural and built environment of Greater Cambridge.

Luca Leone is an architect=planner and a director of Cambridge Architectural Research Ltd (CAR). He studied architecture at Magdalene College, Cambridge, becoming a RIBA qualified architect in 1985, and went on to complete a postgraduate diploma in urban planning development at University College, London. He has been a director of CAR since1999, where he has focused on business development for some of the company's traditional market sectors, such as risk in the built environment, as well as diversifying into new markets for CAR's wide range of expertise.
