Project Summary, Objectives and Expected Impacts
Corridor roads are under pressure. As the population and economy grow, mobility levels increase. Meanwhile, the demand for transport becomes increasingly diverse. These factors put the reliability of the network at risk both for passengers and freight, and call for a more efficient use of road space.
MORE will develop design concepts that encourage street activity and reduce traffic dominance by considering the needs of all road users.
MORE will explore experimental options such as flexible use of kerb space and dynamic allocation of road space to accommodate different functions.
MORE will test these in five urban nodes of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T). It will deliver tools to assist cities in their roadspace design process.
Corridor roads are under pressure from increased mobility. Delays and variable travel times result in time losses for road passengers and freight deliveries. This requires a more efficient use of road space, applying multimodal design. At the same time, developing safe and attractive cities demands transport and city planners to encourage street activity and reduce traffic dominance. MORE will develop design concepts that acknowledge such variety in economic and social interests, considering the needs of all road users.
MORE concentrates on the urban feeder-roads of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T). Their efficient functioning is vital to the local and national economy and the success of the TEN-T. But higher traffic volumes might also lead increased air and noise pollution, accidents, congestion and CO2 emissions – affecting the economic efficiency and the health and well-being the population, demanding counter measures.
MORE will develop and review tools and procedures in five nodes of the TEN-T: Budapest, Constanta, Lisbon, London, and Malmö.
