Demand & urban space management

Managing urban space and travel demand to reduce congestion, for the benefit of sustainable modes and people-centric places.

Transport and urban space are intertwined. The design, planning and allocation of urban space is one of the factors that determines how people and goods move in cities. Transport shapes how urban space is used and lived by the people moving in it.

Moving away from congested car-dominated cities and creating liveable urban spaces, requires an equitable distribution of the street space, in accordance with accessibility and mobility needs whilst considering both on the ground and in the air mobility modes. Approaches ranging from regulatory push-and-pull measures (such as Urban Vehicle Access Regulations – UVARs, parking management, traffic calming, etc.) to new mobility services (such as on-demand shared mobility services, drone deliveries, etc.) are being successfully employed to cut down on congestion and optimise street space usage.

Whilst city authorities and citizens recognise the effectiveness of these approaches in creating liveable urban spaces, the challenges of selecting, combining and implementing them to ensure an optimal response to the local context and mobility culture are still to be managed/addressed.
