Demand & urban space management

Managing urban space and travel demand for the benefit of sustainable modes and people-friendly places.

Transport and urban space are intertwined. The design and allocation of urban space dictates how goods and people move in cities, whilst transport shapes how public space is used and people experience their surroundings. At the same time, urban space is scarce.

Cities are starting to recognise this. As they move away from car-centric planning, urban space distribution is increasingly prioritising sustainable modes and people-focused places. Regulatory measures and economic incentives and disincentives, including UVARs and parking management, are being employed to cut down on congestion and optimise road space usage.

Whilst these trends are positive, the rise of new and shared mobility services brings fresh challenges. New strategies will be needed to ensure curb-side space can be managed more dynamically.
