Climate Change and London's Transport Systems

A report, suitable for teachers and older students, that considers the impacts of climate change on London's transport systems and what needs to be done to adapt to them. Rather than viewing transport simply as a source of greenhouse gas emissions, this study by the London Climate Change Partnership investigates four key issues: ? Tidal and river flooding affecting new infrastructure in the Thames Gateway ? Local flooding of Underground, rail and road infrastructure, including station closures ? Damage to national rail and road infrastructure from hot weather ? Passenger comfort on the Underground in hot weather.
