  • Key issues for improving mobility strategies in large urban areas

    During the period 2012 - 2015, Technical Committee 2.2 collected and evaluated case studies on urban mobility from numerous large and medium-sized cities from all over the world. Three issues were evaluated in these case studies: a comparison of strategies for sustainable urban mobility, at a mobility plan level. the design of transport infrastructure for multimodality in urban areas. te promotion of walking and cycling. In regard to the first issue, the objective was to find out how [...]

  • Framework for Citywide Road Freight Transport Management

    The report entitled "Framework for citywide road freight transport management" of WG1, TC2.3 "Freight Transport" describes the research and findings about the frameworks for public sector road freight transport management (RFTM). RFTM is a key contributor to the sustainable development of urban areas, since good freight transport management supports the creation of efficient and environmentally friendly freight transport systems. The framework of RFTM is characterised by legal, institutional and [...]

  • Strategies for balancing urban transport to improve mobility and reduce road congestion

    This report reviews the factors having a main impact on the supply and demand for road capacity, before it considers the strategies which allow to address congestion and improve mobility of persons in urban areas. From different case studies, the report reviews nine strategies: promoting public transportation; promoting bicycle transportation; promoting pedestrian transportation; promoting intermodal transportation; influencing car demand; strategy to improve the utilisation and [...]

  • The connected vehicle

    The advent of Intelligent Transport Systems has provided new opportunities for improving the safety and efficiency of the road network. The development of intelligent vehicles, connected by wireless networks to the roadside infrastructure, brings opportunities and issues which are being discussed in this report produced by a joint task force of the World Road Association (PIARC) and the International Federation of Automotive Engineering Societies (FISITA). The connected vehicle is no longer a [...]

  • Road safety audit guidelines for safety checks of new road projects

    This guideline is a comprehensive catalogue of design safety problems and countermeasures that outlines the common types of design failures in a definitive guide for road engineers and professionals working in the road transport sector. With the UN Decade of Action soon to be launched by the World Health Organisation and a commitment to reduce road deaths through careful planning and innovative solutions the guidelines provide an excellent resource for road agencies and the private sector. The guidelines [...]
