Task 4.1. Data for walking and cycling.
1. What data does your
city have about walking and cycling? Data from the
Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (2009). Data from the Local Police (to do with
road safety and accidents). Some data from the National Institute of Statistics
2. Is it enough
information to include in transport modeling?
Not at all, since data from the SUMP is outdated.
3. Are these modes
regularly included in your transport modeling?
If so, in what scale of projects –
strategic, local? In León, we do not use a model to organise transport, but
we include cycling and walking in our policies at a local scale.
opportunities/avenues do you have to gather more data?
We are currently working on the updating of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan
(SUMP), which will run together with the Sustainable Energy and Climate Action
Plan (SECAP). The SECAP is the key document in which the signatories of the
Covenant of Mayors outline their intentions to reach their CO2
reduction target by 2030. We will develop both strategic plans using the SIMPLA
harmonisation tool (project developed under the H2020 European programme). The
idea is to actualise data each two years, to have high quality data.
5. Which indicators in
the Impact Assessment Tool would be important to your city? Maybe it could be good to incorporate public
financing and economic indicators.
6. How could you
promote the inclusion of broader benefits into transport impact assessment
tools? When developing the harmonisation of SUMP and SECAP in
the city of León.
