Assessment of Gent’s traffic circulation plan – Transport & Mobility Leuven
A year after the implementation of the traffic circulation plan in Gent, Transport & Mobility Leuven conducted an extensive analysis of its effects. In this study, we address why certain effects occurred and examine the functioning of the new circulation with the specific role of the closed streets and the extension of the restricted traffic area.
Within the scope of this project, we validated and interpreted a large number of data sources. To this end, our project team applied its vast expertise related to both qualitative as well as quantitative analysis. Our researchers conducted a thorough data-analysis of, amongst others, real-time measurement of speed and traffic intensity. Next to that, we also studied modal choices and movement patterns . The results of this study are published in a publically accessible report, that TML drew up together with the city of Gent.
