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

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...

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

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...

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

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?.

The paradox of intensification (2010)
Presentation / Conference
Melia, S. (2010, December). The paradox of intensification. Presented at Centre for Transport and Society Winter Conference

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

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
Presentation / Conference
Melia, S. Potential for carfree development in the UK. Paper presented at 42nd Universities Transport Study Group Conference

This paper aims: to propose a definition and typology of carfree development, to assess the benefits and problems associated with it, to assess the potential demand for ‘European style’ carfree housing in the UK and the circumstances under which it m...
