This research is concerned with the impacts that changing spatial patterns of people’s social networks will have upon future forms and the extent of travel. It seems probable that over the next couple of decades there will be significant increases in the spatial scale of many social networks. This is because of low prices for long-distance travel and communications, as well as the historically high levels of migration and interaction between different countries. It may also be expected that such networks will feel the need to meet up from time to time to cement their network, as people seek to enjoy each other’s company face-to-face and to carry out tasks. This report documents this exploratory project funded by DfT to develop a method for researching the spatial structure of such networks, the nature of meetings that take place from time to time and the implications for travel Show more
