Arterial streets towards sustainability

Objective

Arterial streets present a particular challenge to sustainable urban planning, because they attempt to meet four, often conflicting functions. They (1) provide a major channel for movement between different parts of the city,
(2) provide access for employees, customers and deliveries,
(3) represent a major public space that is visually dominant, culturally charged and of great importance for social interaction,
(4) represent "the garden" for many residents. The aim is to improve the basis for decisions regarding re-construction of arterial streets, taking into account a broad set of social, economic and environmental factors, and to develop Best Practice Guidelines for city authorities throughout the European Union. This will enable re-design of arterial streets in such a way as to improve the physical environment of the corridors while contributing to the implementation of more sustainable urban transport systems.
