This issue of the Arup Journal begins with an examination of transport policy in the UK, considering the issues such as demand for travel; attitudes to the supply of road and rail infrastructure and balancing the need to meet demand, without causing significant environmental damage.

We also look at our work in Paris, where eight floors of former government offices in one wing of the Louvre have been converted into a further 22,000m2 of museum space, and Arup teams designed the courtyard roofs and the natural lighting schemes for the top-floor galleries.

We explore work at Hong Kong Kai Tak Airport, where Arup gave major assistance to the contractor's design for a seven-span, 225m bridge across a waterway in the harbour for aircraft up to the 400 tonne Boeing 747-400F taxiing from the runway to a new parking apron in Kowloon Bay.

Other projects covered in this edition include a suitability study for a new bus-based Rapid Light Transit system in Edinburgh, our work in redeveloping a derelict site in Oldham into a new business park, and finally we look at how our experts employ corrosion monitoring techniques.
