Transportation Engineering is the most creative and at the same time the most analytical branch at work front – very critical working required! Transportation is a daily affair in human life. On an average a person spends as much as 19 full workdays of the year in commuting from one place to another. So, isn’t it a necessity to construct and sustain roads that are easily manageable by the authority as well as easily accessible to the people?
Bringing in the statistics
- 10% of the gross domestic product is in the hands of transportation in USA.
- One-third of America’s roads are in the rural areas and approximately 45% of the highways are overcrowded.
- Cruising may account to 10% of the local circulation as drivers takes as long as 20 mins to find parking space.
Major categories included in transportation are –
- Port and Harbor
- Pipeline engineering
Present loopholes in transportation
Transportation involves hard sciences as well as soft sciences. Transportation is amongst the key economic activities, besides, it’s service ramification, transportation cost for the substantial increase of the business. But to make it a success we need to work on the infrastructure needed for the modern transportation systems.
Traffic congestion and parking difficulties creates hindrance due to overcrowding of space, since footfall per sq.mt is not maintained. Demands for parking space is increasing and not getting fulfilled due to lack of planning. Parking and congestion are interrelated! This is due to poorly synchronized traffic signals.
Longer commuting time is spent for travelling from one place to another. Improving public transport systems thus enthralls the population with options saving them time, money and the luxury to travel with comfort.
Markets, Agoras, Parades and procession community interactions, etc. are the publicly owned spaces that are always free to access. High level of traffic gets in between the other
ways of sustainable transportation. People tend to walk or cycle less than the earlier days. This is due to traffic congestion. Evolving technologies such as Capital and Operating costs and Smart parking services can come to rescue in near future. By evolving these technologies, it is also necessary to consider the sustainable outcome of transportation.
One of the best solutions to lower its effect is providing sustainable transportation, which is measured by providing transportation efficiency as well as keeping in mind the hazardous impacts the environment and climate faces. In short, few measures that should be taken that speaks of a healthier eco-system.
Sustainable transportation work w.r.t social, environment and climate impacts. It has the power to feed itself with renewable sources of energy. There is no agreed evidence of how a sustainable city should look like. It is a necessity to meet the needs of the present without sacrificing the future. Today 55% of the world population and by 2050, 68% of the world population will start living in the urban areas. Sustainable transportation is one that speaks of a much larger and greater benefits of humankind.
