Transport makes an area more accessible to ore people; i.e. people get there by train/cars etc. Transport will also allow the area to grow further because good transport links will get more TNC's to locate there so more low skilled and low paid jobs, so more slum dwellers will move. 

hope that helps x

However sometimes transport can create disruptions by which are hard to eradicate. Everyone knows that transports like Cars and other transport give off a lot of CO2 and other materials, with these materials they then escalate towards globalw warming. everyone knows global warming is a global issue and it is unpredicted.

we can also bring forward that due to globalistion it has increased containerisation by which has made it easy to trade and transfer good to other countries. Approx 700+ goods are transfered. It has also enforced how it has become more cheaper to travel via countries, there are more benefits then negatives when it comes to transport.

I hope this helps.
