TRAFFIC REGIONS IN THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY

VERKEHRSREGIONEN IN DER BUNDESREPUBLIK DEUTSCHLAND

THIS STUDY IS CONCERNED WITH AN ATTEMPT WHICH WAS UNDERTAKEN TO DEVELOP A SYSTEM OF TRAFFIC REGIONS FOR FREIGHT AND PASSENGER TRANSPORT IN THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY. THE AUTHOR STARTS FROM THE CONCEPT OF A SUITABLY-ORIENTATED TRAFFIC POLICY IN THE SENSE OF THE AVOIDANCE OF BOTTLENECKS. THE PASSENGER TRANSPORT REGIONS TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THE REGIONAL LABOUR MARKETS AND THE CENTRALLY LOCATED BUSINESS AREAS. IN THE FREIGHT TRAFFIC REGIONS, THE LOCATION OF THE TRAFFIC CENTRE IS AN IMPORTANT DECISION CRITERION. SEVENTY COMMON PASSENGER AND FREIGHT TRAFFIC REGIONS ARE FORMED BY MEANS OF A SUBJECTIVE WEIGHTING OF THE INDIVIDUAL CRITERIA, TAKING INTO ACCOUNT ALSO, THAT A DEFINITE HARMONIZATION MUST REMAIN WITH THE EXISTING REGIONAL BOUNDARIES.
