Removing road space can ‘disappear’ traffic, says ITF – transportxtra
Reallocating road space from cars to bikes and pedestrians can result in traffic “disappearing”, suggests a new report from the International Transport Forum (ITF).
Governments should review how much road and parking space is allocated to the different transport modes. “Reallocation of road space and changes to road layouts that give more space to cyclists and pedestrians should be used as a strategy to manage car use.”
Growing use of micromobility has strengthened the case for reducing road capacity for cars, the ITF believes.
