One thought on “41 Measures to Manage Traffic Congestion in your City

  1. Thanks Eric. Interesting to a person involved in questioning whether (m)any of these items (strategies, policies, etc) are really being applied widely or only in a few specific cases in Australia as compared with implementation elsewhere.. There does seem to be a lot of “weasel” words ie which are open to interpretation? One missing element which has very significant impacts across most of the items on the list is ‘urban speed limits’ with vast kilometres of local residential streets still 50km/h and most main roads 60km/h or more – making car use by far the most attractive mode … until congestion becomes a problem. So is congestion reduction really a strategy to improve roads for the current mode share? There are very few areas of 40km/h and almost none of 30km/h. There are almost no areas of “shared zones” ie shared with people of all ages and abilities walking, cycling or disability aids. So is this list really a commitment or just another example of “things we are looking at” but have been looking at for, in some cases, up to 30-40 or more years? One “easy” to implement measure is 50/30 yet it is not even on the list!!!! With that added, a useful list? Or akin to New Year resolutions? Good intentions that somehow don’t eventuate?
