Multi-modal Optimisation for Road-space in Europe

Objective

The primary aim of MORE is to develop and implement procedures for the comprehensive co-design of urban main road corridor infrastructure feeding the European TEN-T network, to accommodate their current and future multi-modal and multi-functional requirements; and to address severe problems of congestion, sustainability, noise, air pollution, safety, security, etc., in situations where building new roads is not an option. And in such cases to enable city authorities to make the best use of available road-space, by optimally allocating the available capacity dynamically, in space and time; taking advantage of advances in big data and digital eco-systems, and in new vehicle technologies and operating systems, in materials and construction technologies, and in dynamic traffic signing and lane marking capabilities.
This aim is achieved by comprehensively assessing the needs of all road user groups - and of those who live, work and visit the area – drawing on existing knowledge and extensive stakeholder engagement, to establish design criteria. Key performance indicators will be developed to define and measure the degree to which a road is operating satisfactorily, and to set out design requirements when performance is sub-standard. Four web or computer-based tools will be developed to assist in the road-space reallocation design process, covering: option generation, stakeholder engagement, micro-simulation of road user behaviour, and a comprehensive, multi-modal appraisal tool.
The project will test these tools and procedures through the detailed development of street design packages at test sites (feeder route corridors) in five partner cities on different TEN-T networks, and on- and off-road trials will be carried out to test some of the components. Based on these various outputs, MORE will develop new guidelines for optimal urban road-space allocation and disseminate and exploit them and the design tools, widely throughout Europe.
