Traffic integration and environmental traffic management in Denmark

    Abstract

    This paper assesses Danish experience in attempting to integrate traffic with its surroundings in existing areas. Rest and play areas, quiet roads with a 30 km/h speed limit, and major road schemes on urban shopping streets and through villages are all discussed; so too are policies seeking to create safe routes to school, the problems arising from the introduction of speed reduction measures on bus routes, and the merits of area-wide as opposed to incremental approaches. It is recommended as an appropriate model for Britain to follow. Incremental implementation risks being sub-optimal in design terms but has distinct advantages in minimizing conflicts and enabling rapid implementation. -from Author
