Do randomised control trials offer a solution to 'low quality' transport research? (2015)
Presentation / Conference
Melia, S. (2015, January). Do randomised control trials offer a solution to 'low quality' transport research?. Paper presented at 47th Annual UTSG Conference, London, UK

This article responds to Graham-Rowe et al. (2011), which categorised 77 evaluations of transport interventions into 5 levels of ‘quality’. This article focuses on Graham-Rowe et al.’s treatment of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and their recom...

Shared space: Research, policy and problems (2014)
Journal Article
Moody, S., & Melia, S. (2014). Shared space: Research, policy and problems. Proceedings of the ICE - Transport, 167(6), 384-392. https://doi.org/10.1680/tran.12.00047

Shared space is an approach to street design which minimises demarcations between vehicles and pedestrians. It has become particularly influential in the UK, where a comprehensive study of shared space schemes has informed recently published nationa...

Examining the relationship between life transitions and travel behaviour change: New insights from the UK household longitudinal study (2014)
Presentation / Conference
Clark, B., Chatterjee, K., Melia, S., Knies, G., & Laurie, H. (2014, January). Examining the relationship between life transitions and travel behaviour change: New insights from the UK household longitudinal study. Paper presented at 46th Universities' Transport Studies Group Conference, Newcastle University

Recent research has indicated that changes in travel behaviour are more likely at the time of major life events. However, there remains much to learn about the extent to which different life events trigger behavioural change and the conditions under...

Potential for carfree development in the UK (2013)
Journal Article
Melia, S., Melia, S., Barton, H., & Parkhurst, G. (2013). Potential for carfree development in the UK. Proceedings of the ICE - Urban Design and Planning, 166(2), 136-145. https://doi.org/10.1680/udap.10.00048

Carfree residential areas have been developed in a number of cities in Europe, with clear social and environmental benefits, but the concept has not been widely adopted in the UK. This paper aims to assess the potential consumer demand for housing in... Read More about Potential for carfree development in the UK.

Filtered and unfiltered permeability: The European and Anglo-Saxon approaches (2012)
Journal Article
Melia, S. (2012). Filtered and unfiltered permeability: The European and Anglo-Saxon approaches. PROJECT: Journal of the Department of Planning and Architecture, 4, 6-9

Unfiltered permeability refers to road layouts which provide equal permeability for all modes. Filtered permeability means separating the sustainable modes from private motor traffic in order to give them an advantage in terms of speed, distance and...

Sharing or separation: Which way for streets of the future? (2012)
Presentation / Conference
Hamilton-Baillie, B., & Melia, S. (2012, May). Sharing or separation: Which way for streets of the future?. Presented at Sharing or Separation: Which way for streets of the future? A debate with Ben Hamilton-Baillie and Steve Melia, University of the West of England, Bristol, UK

This debate will be of particular interest to transport planners, spatial planners, urban designers and anyone interested in the future of our streets and our towns and cities. The ‘shared space’ approach to street design has become very influenti... Read More about Sharing or separation: Which way for streets of the future?.

Carfree, low-car - what's the difference (2011)
Journal Article
Melia, S., Parkhurst, G., & Barton, H. (2011). Carfree, low-car - what's the difference. World Transport Policy and Practice, 16(2), 24-28

The paradox of intensification (2011)
Journal Article
Melia, S., Parkhurst, G., & Barton, H. (2011). The paradox of intensification. Transport Policy, 18(1), 46-52. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tranpol.2010.05.007

Urban intensification as part of a smart growth strategy can facilitate low-energy transport modes and reduce overall car use, with benefits to the global environment, but evidence suggests the effect will be less than proportional. Hence, in locatio... Read More about The paradox of intensification.

The paradox of intensification (2010)
Presentation / Conference
Melia, S. (2010, December). The paradox of intensification. Presented at Centre for Transport and Society Winter Conference, University of the West of England, Bristol, UK

Intensifying cities, increasing their population density, reduces overall car use with benefits to the global environment, but also increases concentrations of traffic, worsening local conditions, unless it is accompanied by constraints on car owners...

Carfree, low car - what's the difference? (2010)
Presentation / Conference
Melia, S. (2010, October). Carfree, low car - what's the difference?. Paper presented at European Transport Conference, Glasgow, Scotland

This paper aims to propose a definition and typology of carfree development and to assess the benefits and problems associated with it. It aims to contrast these with the concept and practice of ‘low car’ development. Through a review of the litera... Read More about Carfree, low car - what's the difference?.

Potential for carfree development in the UK (2009)
Thesis
Melia, S. Potential for carfree development in the UK. (Thesis). University of the West of England. Retrieved from https://uwe-repository.worktribe.com/output/989644

Rising car ownership and use has been associated with: pollution, resource depletion, waste of land, social exclusion and health problems. Carfree development is a relatively recent response to these problems in urban areas. There are several examp... Read More about Potential for carfree development in the UK.
