The next generation of transport engineers and scientists will need to comprehend and manage the grand challenges in providing sustainable, smart and resilient transport systems critical for maintaining the competitiveness of cities and built environments (Kaewunruen et al., 2016). Importantly, they will also need capabilities to balance between societal needs and environmental impacts in accordance with United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as illustrated in Figure 1. Every interdependent transport mode (i.e. road, rail, marine, aviation, pipeline) is the key essential enabler to most of SDGs. If you cannot realise it, imagine what happen when there exists none of any transportation system. The scale, scope and significance of transport systems on the SDGs pave the pathway to impact of this issue of Transport.
