Book Preface

With 25 years’ experience of transport terminals, principally airports, I have become conscious of the real contribution that design and organisation of transport terminal buildings can make to the public transport crusade.

All too often, the designer of one terminal is forced to accept a compromise in locating and providing inter-modal links to others.

The opportunity arose in 2002 for me and my company, Scott Brownrigg Ltd – architects based in London and Guildford, UK – to sponsor research in the area of interchange design. The fruit of this research combines with a survey of airport-based and rail stationand port-based interchange facilities to point to success in the joining up of transport modes and reclaiming the interchange as a positive experience for the traveller.

My recent appointment as a Visiting Professor in the School of Engineering at the University of Surrey is affording me the opportunity to further develop integrated transport solutions.

Without good interchanges, public transport will miss the opportunity to ameliorate the travel experience of crowded roads, and the public transport usage target percentages set by local and national government and airport authorities will not be met.
