Urban Travel and Population Density: (Singapore LTA “Journeys”) By Wendell Cox

http://ltaacademy.gov.sg/doc/JOURNEYS_Nov%202012.pdf
From the portals of Demographia, a public
policy firm in St Louis, USA, Wendell Cox
questions the long-held and popular belief
that lower density cities have longer average
work trip travel times and greater traffic
congestion compared to more compact
cities. He puts forward several key evidence,
arguments and analyses to show that the
opposite is true – that higher urban densities
are associated with longer work trip travel
times and greater traffic congestion.
