Abstract

Focusing on the design, construction and use of England's M1 motorway, the A. traces the social and cultural geographies and histories of the spaces of motorway driving. The book takes an interdisciplinary approach, and draws on archival materials as well as contemporary debates. Attention is drawn to ideas dating from 1920 to 1950 about a future motorway system for England, the design, construction and landscaping of the motorway, and how it has been used and evaluated in recent decades. - (HC)
