Dual in the Town

Many of the underlying problems of current transportation systems stem from the fundamental conflict of many vehicle types sharing the same roads. Having slow-moving vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians in the mix with large, fast, heavy trucks and automobiles creates conflicts and endangers many road users. The author proposes a new approach where a town would be planned with separate systems for low speed, lightweight modes (LLMs) and fast, heavy vehicles (FHVs). A model network is described with safety, environmental, economic and social benefits.
