MODEL PROJECT 'AREA-WIDE TRAFFIC CALMING'. DOCUMENTATION OF MEASURES MODEL AREA 'BERLIN-MOABIT'

MODELLVORHABEN FLAECHENHAFTE VERKEHRSBERUHIGUNG. BD. 5. MASSNAHMENDOKUMENTATION TEIL BERLIN-MOABIT

The model area of Berlin-Moabit in the Tiergarten district near the center of Berlin is a residential area with its own center, predominantly four and five-story buildings from the historical period of rapid industrial expansion, and many shops and businesses. The model area is characterized by heavily trafficked arterial roads with a high population density and overly wide residential roads generating their own traffic and parking problems. Together with the poor ecological situation, Berlin-Moabit represents a typical example of a densely populated metropolitan area. The procedural plan of action for area-wide traffic calming comprized the redesign of the entire network of residential roads. Basic elements were designed for wide-spread application. With respect to the link roads segregating old neighbourhoods, speed reductions and measures enhancing area attractiveness were to be implemented. For studying the effectiveness of individual basic elements, one road segment had initially been redesigned to provide a test section.
