In recent years most societies committed themselves explicitly or implicitly to the principles of sustainable development preceded by the appearance of the Our Common Future report [WCED, 1987] and international agreement conform Agenda 21 [UNCED, 1992]. Nevertheless, beyond dispute quality-of-life, levels of basic freedom, health, education, access to/and distribution of resources etc. especially in urban areas in both the industrialised and industrialising world are in danger. Reasons for this are inter alia the environmental and safety impacts of transportation, and the dependence of land-uses on the financial resources for construction and maintenance of its associated infrastructure.
