The Role of Greenery and Traffic Calming Measures in Planning of Road Infrastracture

Abstract

The role of greenery and traffi c calming measures in road infrastructure planning. The “life” of a town is connected with its infrastructure. So it is that, apart from serving their principal function, motorways, roads, airports and other facilities which make transport possible largely determine contemporary urban design. To achieve balanced forms of urban infrastructure that ensure comfort, safety and spatial order, it is necessary when designing new solutions to adopt a multifaceted approach that combines everything local residents need and maintains harmony with the existing cultural landscape. Development of this kind should be guaranteed by the town’s authorities and infrastructure administrators. It is therefore necessary to coordinate a number of complex undertakings when planning and developing urban space. The coherent and comprehensive implementation of planned road safety improvements should not only reduce the number and seriousness of accidents but should also lead to an improved quality of urban life and living conditions, more effi cient division of urban space, better traffi c fl ow for pedestrians and cyclists, changes in the behaviour of all road users, changes in the structure of the cargoes transported and greater use of safer means of transport. This paper deals with a concept for planning transport infrastructure based on the principle of establishing zones and shared spaces and presents examples of how roads and their environs can be planned in a town.
