Lay summary
Research projects, as well as governmental traffic management, frequently underestimate theimportance of pedestrian and cycle traffic for environmentally friendly mobility. In its firstphase, this project prepares a comprehensive survey of previous experiences, and a secondphase will investigate in depth obstacles for the support of increased pedestrian and cycle traffic. Key Questions:
  • To what extent, and under which conditions, can pedestrian and cycle traffic increase their modal split share?
  • What obstacles hinder implementation of measures in favour of pedestrian and cycle traffic?
  • Where are the research gaps?
Various research institutes have combined their efforts to form a research team. A conferencewill conclude the project.
