TRAFFIC PROBLEMS IN A LARGE CITY

PROBLEMI DI UNA GRANDE CITTA. LA CIRCOLAZIONE VEICOLARE

This article discusses the pedestrian precinct of Milan's city centre. It is pointed out that whilst the experiment has appreciably reduced traffic congestion in the area, it does not by any means solve the traffic problems of the city as a whole. Milan's population has doubled since 1925 and the built up area has exceeded the city boundaries. In social and community costs, traffic congestion accounted for 160 billion lira in 1970. The author suggests that the solution to the traffic problem would be a financial plan for the whole urban area, to finance the construction of roads, over- and under- passes, and underground railways. /TRRL/
