Demand Management Strategies

CIVITAS Insight 04 - Developing less congested and safer roads by managing parking (download)
 

Demand management strategies (DMS) can reduce traffic congestion and optimize road space utilization through a variety of regulatory measures and economic incentives and disincentives.

DMS within CIVITAS are based upon access restrictions or road pricing schemes to enter the inner city and/or other sensitive areas.

Access and pricing options may be focused on certain categories of vehicles like coaches, trucks or pollutant vehicles or extended to all vehicle categories like for car-free zones, congestion charging and mobility credit schemes.

The thematic group also focuses on the strategic and operative management of parking spaces and traffic rules (parking tariffs, signaling, temporary schemes for road works and events).

The Mount Hope-Breithaupt Park Neighbourhood Association persuaded the city to place an eye-grabbing mural smack in the middle of the intersection. The hope is the artwork, now part of a pilot traffic project, will make drivers focus and navigate the crossing with caution.

I recently stumbeled across an interesting BIVEC - lecture that was given by Prof Eliasson. It adresses several cases on the implementation of congestion charging. Although I was not able to be present at the lectures, I think the slides contain some interesting information.

Policy Recommendations For EU Sustainable Mobility Concepts based on CIVITAS Experience

The Policy Recommendations present the main findings arising from the evaluation of the CIVITAS Plus Collaborative Projects (CPs), which ran from 2008-2012.

This publication was written under the auspices of the CIVITAS POINTER project, which supported five collaborative projects (CP s) implemented within the framework of the third edition of the CIVITAS programme. Evaluation and monitoring were the key stones of CIVITAS POINTER. Drawing from first-hand, corroborated statistical evidence gathered from participating cities, this publication presents the results of the CIVITAS Plus cross-site evaluation and policy assessment. These findings support the development of clear European-level policy recommendations that have the potential for being embraced by all European cities — not just those which make up the CIVITAS community.

The document seeks to identify factors that can boost the effectiveness and consistency of future strategies, thereby securing greater sustainability in urban mobility patterns. Policy makers are provided with contemporary facts for debating purposes, and a number of conclusions and recommendations based on lessons learnt from CIVITAS Plus are put forward.

First discussion document - Super Cycle Highways (Spring 2014)

This document is prepared as input and discussion document for the first discussion topic for the thematic group “Demand Management Strategies”. Basically CiViTAS defines three key themes:

  • Access management and road pricing
  • Parking management / pricing
  • Walking and Cycling enhancement services

The CiViTaS website offers numerous best practices related to these three topics. We selected a first topic based on a number of criteria (relevancy, urgency, possibility to create synergy with other CiViTAS themes, cros-cultural aspects and a number of practical criteria). Future criteria can be added based on input from thematic group members.

For the first discussion topic we focus on: “the walking and cycling enhancement services”. Cycling is hot and the European Union suggests that cycling should be an integral part of urban mobility policies. The bicycle is considered an alternative to the car for trips less than 5 km and almost half of the trips are under 5 km. One trend that is obviously going on in relation to cycling is electrification of the bicycle, or the introduction of the pedelec. This also makes the bicycle an alternative to cars for longer trips (>15km). A second trend that is related, to this authorities all over Europe are investing in Super Cycle Highways (SCH). Although the definition of SCH’s differ per country (of project), all SCH’s are bike routes where the needs of the cyclist are given priority.

For the first CiViTAS discussion theme we want to focus on different aspects of Super Cycle Highways.  First we introduce three cases: The London Case (Section 2), The Copenhagen Case (Section 3) and the Dutch Case (Section 4). The cases give a short (2-3 pages) introduction into different Super Cycle Highway practices in different countries. In the final section, Section 5, we introduce a first list of discussion topics related to the Super Cycle Highways.
