Abstract

In the present paper some aspects of the design and application of an Urban Transport Plan in Reggio Calabria, a city in the south of Italy is presented. The process introduced aims to improve the quality of life and access for more sustainable patterns of development, while at the same time not harming the urban mobility, proposing a model that can be applied to the neighboring urban areas. The high costs of construction of additional road space, and the consideration that a greater offer of road space is an impulse for a greater demand of private car traffic, led the planning in the direction of using existing road space more efficiently, by using traffic control mechanisms, and shifting demand to alternative modes
