Area-wide traffic management: An innovative strategy for urban centres
MetadataShow full item record
This study compares and contrasts a traditional view of traffic management with an emerging, broad interpretation that supports sustainable development. We then summarise recent research we undertook to examine the feasibility of applying sustainable transportation principles within Vancouver’s downtown in a comprehensive programme called area-wide traffic management (AWTM). AWTM attempts to improve transportation efficiency by reducing over- reliance upon motorised vehicles within urban centres.
