CONTROLLED MOBILITY? ASPECTS OF TRANSPORTATION GEOGRAPHY IN THE ORIENTATION REPORT

BEHEERSTE MOBILITEIT? VERKEERS- EN VERVOERS- GEOGRAFISCHE BESCHOUWINGEN NAAR AANLEIDING VAN DE ORIENTERINGSNOTA

One of the central goals of the physical planning orientation report of 1974 is the future restriction of mobility in the Netherlands. It is in conflict with many forces in present society, which rather stimulate the increase of personal mobility. Consequently limited use of private cars can only be realized if alternative mobility opportuities are strongly promoted, epgp fail transport for commuting and other public transport facilities. The orientation report, however, is very indefinite on this point. That a brake should be put on the further growth of motor traffic is shown by a calculation of the total areal occupation of this kind of mobility. It appears that by the year 2000 as much space will be needed for motorways and their noise zones as for all residential areas. Therefore, promotion of public transport is necessary to secure urban renewal as well as rural open areas. /TRRL/
