Transport, Urban Regeneration and Health

WithJulie Clark, Angela Curl

From encouraging positive mental wellbeing to being a leading cause of death, there are a plethora of health impacts related to transport in urban areas. This chapter explores the multiple connections between transport and urban development, demonstrating their impacts on health at different scales, from city- and regional-level regeneration to neighbourhood interventions. Initially drawing on a social determinants of health model to map the conceptual links between transport and health, the chapter investigates a range of international examples to illustrate the opportunities and tensions inherent in urban mobility.
