Pavement busters guide: why and how to reduce the amount of land paved for roads and parking facilities

This guide identifies ways to reduce the amount of land required for roads and parking facilities. It examines ways to determine optimal road and parking supply and the full economic, social and environmental costs of increased impervious surface. It identifies current policies and planning practices that unintentionally contribute to economically excessive road and parking requirements, and specific strategies for reducing the amount of land paved for roads and parking facilities. This analysis indicates that road and parking pavement area can often be reduced significantly in ways that are cost effective and maintain adequate levels of accessibility.
