The Effects of HSGT on Urban Decentralizationby William Gimpel, Parsons Brinckerhoff Quade &, Douglas, Baltimore, United States,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: High Speed Ground Transportation Systems I: Planning and Engineering
While promoting a more efficient use of resources, high-speed ground transportation also could retard the process of urban decentralization which has been encouraged by the location of transportation intermodal focus points, such as airports and highway interchanges, well outside of city centers. This paper considers the relationship between transportation technology and urban form, especially the secondary and spatial effects high-speed rail has had upon urban decentralization in those areas where it has been developed most effectively: Japan and France.
