Between 2002 and 2006 six of Londons bus companies put into service 390 articulated bendy buses on twelve routes for transport in London.rnrnDuring what turned out to be a foreshortened nine years in service, the Mercedes-Benz Citaro G buses familiar on the continent and worldwide earned an unenviable reputation in London; according to who you read and who you believed, they caught fire at the drop of a hat, they maimed cyclists, they drained revenue from the system due to their susceptibility to fare evasion, they transported already long-suffering passengers in standing crush loads like cattle and they contributed to the extinction of the Routemaster from frontline service. In short, it was often referred to as the bus we hated.rnrnThis account is an attempt by a long-time detractor of the bendy buses to set the vehicles in their proper context not quite to rehabilitate them, but to be as fair as is possible towards a mode of transport which felt about as un-British as could be.

Transport, Engineering and Architecture is the second book in a series which explores the relationship between engineering and architecture. Divided into chapters devoted to themes such as planning transport systems, bridges, airport and aviation, this book helps today's engineers and architects meet the ongoing challenges of a fast moving and expanding business. Since the nineteenth century and the arrival of mass travel, the need for transport architecture has spawned some of the most impressive structures of recent times. As all forms of travel - air, rail, road and water - continue to expand, the ever-growing numbers of passengers and carriers moving around the world present new tests for architects and engineers. The book is produced in association with Arup, the largest firm of consulting engineers in the world. * Unique focus on areas where there is close connection between architecture and engineering * Detailed technical information is a practical aid to understanding the concepts involved * High profile case studies illustrate themes and inspire future projects
