Abstract

In suburban areas near the metropolis, transport improvement such as provision of highways brings a drastic change in land use and the environment. It is often observed that savings in travel time through highway construction contribute to the increase in recreational development and travel demand. Since land use control is not yet implemented strictly in Japan, highway construction also triggers environmental problems, such as the increasing emission generated by road traffic of tourists and the depletion of natural green areas.
