MOBILITY AND THE ENVIRONMENT IN OLD ESTABLISHED TOWNS AND CITIES

Urban life is developed for the security, convenience, well-being and prosperity of men. Modern traffic causes conflict and congestion in those city streets and casualties as well. In bigger towns there are more varied opportunities but greater distances to reach the people's individual needs: work, school, shopping and recreation. The people must consider mobility, convenience and environment in selecting their home, work, school, shops and recreation. Urban traffic is concentrated on ten percent of the city streets in Britain. Patterns of journeys and inter-relation of walkers, cars, buses and cyclists are discussed. The highways in residential areas should have a space in the centre for cyclists which have priority in these areas. Beside this cycletrack there should be narrow highways for cars, and beside these, footpaths. /TRRL/
