GOOD EXPERIENCES WITH SEGREGATION OF TRAFFIC AND PEDESTRIANS IN NESBYEN, NORWAY

GODE ERFARINGER MED GATETUNET I NESBYEN

A special area where it is possible to drive a car on the pedestrians' terms has been established at Nesbyen, Norway. The area is designed in such a way that it is impossible to drive fast. This particular design does not follow the Dutch pattern completely. The technical solutions are similar to the Dutch ones, but instead of a pure residential area a business street in a residential area was chosen. The experience gained so far indicates that this seems to have been a good solution, and can be recommended where the traffic flow is below 300 vehicles per hour. The area described covers 250 M street with both dwelling houses and shops, but the main impression is a business street. The article describes the planning and preliminary work, the furnishings used, the parking arrangements, the winter maintenance, the reactions of the public, and the financing. (TRRL)
