PARKING FACILITIES IN URBAN CENTRES (1)

PARKEERVOORZIENINGEN IN STEDELIJKE CENTRA (1)

The authors start from the viewpoint that as much attention should be given to parking as to the moving automobile. Planning of parking garages should be based on requirements for the quality of the environment, but the walking distance the car driver has to cover after parking his vehicle should also be kept in mind. A city centre - provided it has been properly designed and equipped - can entice drivers to accept longer walking distances, if more attention is paid to improving pedestrian routes between parking accommodation and the city centre. The question whether there should be parking garages or not is not relevant any longer: it is merely a matter of where they should be located. /TRRL/
