City Sense: Sustainable Traffic Solutions Through Better Public Transport, Not Wider Roads
Traffic is one of the major concerns faced by cities across the world. More often than not, building more flyovers or widening roads are accepted as the given solutions to this problem.

She emphasises the need to choose sustainable transport options more but points out that what people want is influenced by what kind of soft and hard infrastructure is created around them.
