FINAL REPORT: LIVING WITH TRAFFIC IN TOWNS AND VILLAGES

EINDRAPPORT VERKEERSLEEFBAARHEID IN STEDEN EN DORPEN

When houses and other buildings are constructed, the situation and layout must consider the mixing of residents and traffic. This takes place in an area for pedestrians, cyclists, residents and traffic within a residential area. Local authorities must clearly indicate where the residential areas are and where the vehicle traffic can drive unhindered. The residential area appears to full advantage as a "Woonerf". In two Dutch cities, Rijswijk and Eindhoven, demonstration projects have been started. In cooperation with the residents some residential areas have been given a new layout. Furthermore research will be undertaken in fourteen cities on the quality of living in the vicinity. The reconstruction of the main road network, the division into regions, the construction of cycle tracks and footways, the construction of a route for public transport, the need for parking and the possibilities for parking in existing streets are discussed.
