The Issue of Urban Static Traffic on Selected Examples in Bratislava in the Context of Economic Sustainability

Urban static traffic is an essential component of the urban transport infrastructure, the capacity of which is increasingly undersized in relation to the disproportionately increasing number of car traffic in the city. The issue of parking in Slovakia is a long-term problem, whether in existing buildings or with new development projects where parking costs are only kind of a forced expenditure on which developers often want to save money. The main objective of this paper is the analysis and critical assessment of the current state of static traffic in the largest city, in Bratislava, one of the most densely populated conurbations in the Slovak Republic. Achieving the objective is implemented through selected examples, whether in the existing residential area - the largest housing estate in Central Europe, Petrzalka - on new residential development projects, or densification of the existing inner-city residential built-up area. All of these examples have a common denominator - the lack of concepts and solutions of static urban traffic. The authors try to bring in recommendations based on the concepts implemented in selected foreign examples as a potential solution.
