Transport information resource: global Transport Knowledge Partnership

I have just been alerted to another useful web-based information resource on transport, with a focus on development-related issues. It is the global Transport Knowledge Partnership (gTKP).

Why haven't I noticed it before? I guess I have not been paying enough attention!

The site includes a large number of useful documents in various formats. Note: you need to allow popups in your browser for the site to work properly.
"The global Transport Knowledge Partnership is an initiative to promote and disseminate sustainable transport knowledge, whilst encouraging greater participation from the developing world.

gTKP is currently sponsored and chaired by Peter O’Neill of the UK’s Department of International Development with an Interim Board that includes David Silcock (GRSP), Adrian Walsh (Roadsafe), David Ward (FIA), Charles Melhuish (ADB), Brian Williams (UN-Habitat), Madan G Maleku (HMG/N), Nu’uman Danbatta (MoT, Nigeria) and Dai Dongchang (TPRI, China), Peter Njenga (IFRTD, East and Southern Africa)."
