  • IP0693 - A new way of planning sustainable mobility: the case study of the Genoa sub-port tunnel

    Autostrade per l'Italia plans to build a sub-port tunnel for the city of Genoa, enabling work for the urban redevelopment of the waterfront. The fate of the current road connecting the east and west sides of Genoa's old port, known as the "Aldo Moro causeway" built in 1960, is still unknown as it could be demolished, functionally reconverted, or subjected to extraordinary maintenance and regeneration [...]

  • IP0197 - Applying new ITS approaches to solve sustainable urban mobility
    Jiří RŮŽIČKA

    A number of Czech and European cities are dealing with growing volumes of traffic and the increasing degree of motorization. One of the important issues that cities must address in the future is sustainable urban mobility. There are many approaches to solving sustainable mobility, they can be measures of a construction, technological or organizational type. Based on current European and Czech trends, [...]

  • IP0176 - Developing environment and social aspects in Sustainable Transport Indicators for Metropolis: The Greater Jakarta case

    Since 40 years ago, many countries' global policy agendas now include sustainable development. The central idea is that ongoing development and resource extraction should not jeopardize the future generations' ability to fulfill their own needs. Sustainable mobility should encourage economic development and meet people's needs while also adhering to natural laws and social values. The idea of people’s [...]

  • IP0632 - Environmental and socio-economic impacts of shared electric mobility in the Italian ‘Silver Coast’ touristic area
    Raffaele ALFONSI

    Tourism is one of the most important sectors that contributeto Italian economic growth. The sector generates 5% of the total national GDP, contributing to6%(directly) and 15% (indirectly) of the total national employment (Italiaindati, 2020). UNWTOindicated that Italy was the fifth most visited country in the world in 2019.Tourismrequires people to travel and is thereforeclosely linked to transport-related [...]

  • IP0399 - How to present the transformation of urban mobility? Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) and how to use them in public space transformations
    Jitka VRTALOVÁ

    Urban mobility needs to respond to the challenges facing society as a whole. The number of cars is steadily increasing in the Czech Republic, with a 35% increase in the last 10 years alone. However, the increase in the number of people for whom cycling is their first travel choice is even more dramatic. Research shows that every Czech over the age of 5 makes 61% of his/her daily journeys in an active [...]

  • IP0022 - Land Use and Transport Modelling: Planning Tools for Green Transition of Transport in Norwegian Functional Urban Areas
    Tore LEITE

    The regional transport models are developed to calculate how changes in the road network and public transport services influence on modal shift and transport demand. Land use and parking policy are, however, also main contributors to transport demand in urban areas. The Norwegian land use analysis tool - ADV has been developed to make better calculations of land use and parking in transport modelling [...]

  • IP0027 - Mainstreaming the Mitigation Hierarchy in Uganda’s Road Infrastructure – A case of the Kampala – Entebbe Expressway
    Joseph ASIIMWE

    Infrastructure projects in Uganda play a key role in socio-economic development. They are also associated with significantly environmental risks and if not properly managed can result into environmental degradation, pollution and loss of biodiversity and habitats on which humans depend. Therefore well-designed, appropriately located and affordably priced infrastructure can be a powerful tool in the [...]

  • IP0685 - Mobility Survey, National Census and Mobile Operator Data in Region Transport Plan
    Marek DRLICIAK

    The article presents a study of the implication of several data in the transport model of the region. Deals with using a comprehensive set of data from several sources that characterize daily mobility. The northwestern part of Slovakia named the Zilina region is presented as a resolved area. A strategic transport plan was developed in the Zilina region, which includes almost 700,000 inhabitants. [...]

  • IP0575 - Planning of Active Transport Infrastructure with Regard to the Specific Needs of its Various Users
    Karolina KLIMOVA

    The design of any public infrastructure should take into account the needs of all its potential users, both present and future. This requires not only an excellent knowledge of the characteristics of the target group, but also a demographic and social forecast. Inevitably, even in the field of active mobility, there will be situations where comfort for some means less comfort or even safety for others [...]

  • IP0576 - Smetanovo embankment. Adaptation of a street into a livable public space.
    Karolina KLIMOVA

    The right bank of the Vltava was raised to a height of 20 m above the river level with the aim of creating a new livable public space. This was not only to build a water control, but above all to create a representative urban promenade in honour of the late emperor Francis I. With the increase in car traffic in the 1970s, the use was altered and the area became predominantly a through route in the [...]

  • IP0454 - Strategy of the Highway Infrastructure Development Planning in the Czech Republic
    Luděk SOSNA

    The article evaluates current condition of the highway infrastructure in the Czech Republic, connection of the Czech highway network within the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) and also importance of highway infrastructure planning in a context of the Czech Republic as the country connecting highway and road transport in the centre of Europe. Next part of the article is focused on the [...]

  • IP0722 - Sustainable mobility linked to transformations of settlement-forming functions
    Bystrík BEZÁK

    Originally, basic human activities were performed at the place of residence and mobility was a natural part of them. The gradual differentiation of human activities created diverse forms of settlements and relationships between them. Interactions in the settlement structure. and the increase in mobility also stimulated the emergence of diverse forms of movement of people and goods. Today, long-term [...]

  • IP0565 - Traffic face of a digital urban twin - Use case of the City of Pilsen
    Karel JEDLIČKA

    The contribution starts with introducing the digital urban twin (DUT - https://www.digitalurbantwins.com) concept itself, giving emphasis to both the technical and social aspects of the concept. The technical part describes the need for both directional instant communication between the physical world, and its digital twin using IoT sensors; historizing the data, and using such registers in combination [...]

  • IP0271 - Urban Planning as a Base of Sustainable Mobility
    Martin VSETECKA

    Overloaded road network, slow public transport, or the absence of safe cycling infrastructure are persistent issues in most cities. One way to reach the goal of sustainable mobility is through intelligent urban planning based on the regulation of future traffic demands. This approach, also known as the city of short distances, is used in the New Master Plan of the city of Brno. In contrast to the [...]
