PEDESTRIAN STREETS IN CENTRAL COPENHAGEN

This article surveys the effects of the pedestrianisation of several streets in the central business district (CBD) of Copenhagen. Air pollution and noise levels fell, and pedestrian traffic increased. Not all of the former vehicular traffic was diverted to adjacent streets. Rush hour public transport patronage declined, daily patronage less than for the city on a whole. There was a tendency for accidents to shift from the CBD to the surrounding streets. The concluding section examines the future transport strategy for copenhagen. /TRRL/
