PROBLEMS OF TRAFFIC CONGESTION AND OF COMMUTERS IN THE PLANNING OF METROPOLITAN AND RAILROAD SERVICES

I PROBLEMI DELLA CONGESTIONE DEL TRAFFICO E DEI PENDOLARI NELLA PIANIFICAZIONE DEI SERVIZI METROPOLITANI E FERROVIARI

Individual automobile transport as the main cause of traffic congestion in urban areas and the remedies to solve the commuter problem are considered. The system adopted in London by the British Transport Commission, to keep quite separate urban transport from suburban and regional is explained and recommeded. A comparison is made between short distance and inter-city commuter services, which involves change of trains and the accompanying difficulties. It is suggested that metropolitan lines be gradually extended to the points where there is sufficient traffic intensity, with a traffic distribution as uniform as possible, attempting to balance it on two radial sections of a transversal line of the city.
