Task 5.1: Transferability
of measures to your city's context.
Now it is your turn to
think about your own city. Please post your responses to the following
questions in the discussion forum below.
Please select one of
the measures that cities undertook in module 5.2 and 5.3 that could be relevant
for your city (e.g. creating a new pedestrian zone or widening foot paths).
1. How could the
quantitative “Quick Facts” (i.e. the figures) about the impact of your selected
measure be of use to your city?
For sure, the impact would be positive after little
time. In fact, when we have accomplished measures to reallocate space for
pedestrians in León, at the beginning there was also a fear that these measures
could increase congestion, as in Strasbourg, but in the end everything has
2. Can you imagine a
similar impact of the measure in your city? Why or why not?
Yes. When spatial changes occur in cities, it
is quite normal that not only politicians or technicians are afraid of them but
also population. In any case, when space is given to pedestrians or soft
transport modes, eventually, citizens do not want to return to the initial situation.
3. How would you
evaluate the impact of the measure in your city once implemented?
We have never measured the impacts of such
measures, what is definitely a good reason and strategy to support them.
