- How is congestion understood in your work context?
Congestion for us means: inadequate design of traffic areas, too many cars in the street, many cars parked along the streets, lack of signs and markings, badly thought-out intersections, lack of roundabouts.
2. What barriers to these ideas would you have to overcome amongst colleagues, supervisors, political officers?
- Promoting walking and cycling as a modes of transport.
- Restoration of traffic lights at junctions with modern equipment (automatic traffic control, LED traffic lights, pedestrian crossovers).
- Equipment for intersections with presence detectors and cameras.
- Agreements between policy makers regarding the public transport in the areas adjacent to the city. In this way will be less private cars in the city.
3.What can you do to bring the FLOW approach to your workplace?
The understanding of a SUMP and organization of various debates have the positive impact on raising awareness about sustainable modes of transport. Giving suggestions and comments with this topic can help in improving the understanding of policy makers, of the traffic planners. The fact that the decision factors of our city took part at one of the Flow meeting (in Munich) was of real use because they find out that a mobility plan must be understood, thought and applied, that it is not just a piece of paper.
