Reaching Success – Joined-Up Thinking on Space and Mobility. Project “Integrated Urban Development and Mobility Planning”. First Interim Report
To make our mobility more sustainable, we must focus our attention on the interaction between space and mobility. Urban infrastructure has a significant influence on how we get from A to B. Compact, versatile, mixed-use spaces are key to having greater freedom in our personal mobility choices. Short distances enable us to get around in our living environment. Places for people to spend time as well as varied offerings that are as barrier-free as possible provide places to be, meet and chat in the neighbourhood, making the streetscape more livable.
This acatech DISCUSSION is intended to provide an introduction to the topic and gives examples of closed-loop systems to explain the basic interactions between space and mobility. These are illustrated at different levels of scale: urban area, district and street. Downstream, the project will focus on the practical realisation of integrated planning approaches. This will give recommendations for municipalities, regions, policy makers, business and society on the effective realisation of integrated urban development and mobility planning.
