Starting with an analysis of the shelved traffic routes and underlying trip purposes, the requirements for the small scale mixing of urban functions (dwelling, shopping, working, recreation) are stated and an investigation made into the possibility of realizing these requirements in the Vienna area. It is suggested that there should be a better relation between working places and residential areas by the decentralisation of service and utility organisations. Noise sources from road traffic and the existing measurement and estimation procedures for motor vehicles and rail traffic are analysed and the noise from public and private transport is compared. Various possibilities of reducing exhaust emission are considered (speed, diesel- and gas-operation) and their effects upon the various exhaust components are investigated. As the third largest of the environmental burdens, the heat output and the efficiency of vehicles is investigated and it is recommended that there should be increased use of diesel vehicles and electrically driven vehicles on tracks (trams) because of their better efficiency and lesser energy requirements. Finally the suggested measures are applied to an example of a possible transportation organisation for the 6th and 7th districts in Vienna. (TRRL)
