Bit by bit, for the past 40 years, the city of Copenhagen has done something revolutionary: The Danish capital has reduced its parking supply. Cutting the total number of parking spaces by a small percentage each year stands in stark contrast to the more common pattern of cities adding more and more parking to accommodate private cars. But in a few pockets around the world, momentum is growing behind efforts to bump out large parking lots, curbside parking, and garages in favor of services and infrastructure for pedestrians, cyclists, and public transportation. “There’s no demand for parking, per se,” said parking policy expert Rachel Weinberger, assistant professor of city and regional planning at the University of Pennsylvania.

zoom Penny-pinching Mayor Rob Ford’s subway plan would cost three times as much per kilometre to build as the four Metrolinx-funded light rail lines and attract only half as many riders, says a study released Wednesday by a sustainable-energy think tank. It suggests Ford’s subway expansion plans would cost about $344 million per kilometre and attract about 65 million rides annually.

Waze.com, una red social para evitar trancones - Noticias de Tecnología en Colombia y el Mundo El servicio gratuito Waze llegó en octubre al país y ya cuenta con 25.000 usuarios. No se trata de una red social común y corriente, pues no se enfoca en buscar amigos, sino en colaborar con otros para mantenerse informados sobre la situación del tráfico en las caóticas vías de buena parte de Colombia y de otros países. Aunque la aplicación cuenta con mapas del 85 por ciento de las carreteras del país, por ahora es más utilizado en Bogotá, Cali, Medellín, Barranquilla, Cartagena y Villavicencio. Para beneficiarse de ella es necesario contar con un teléfono inteligente con Sistema de Posicionamiento Global (GPS).

Brussels, 28 March 2011 Transport 2050: Commission outlines ambitious plan to increase mobility and reduce emissions The European Commission today adopted a comprehensive strategy (Transport 2050) for a competitive transport system that will increase mobility, remove major barriers in key areas and fuel growth and employment. At the same time, the proposals will dramatically reduce Europe's dependence on imported oil and cut carbon emissions in transport by 60% by 2050. To achieve this will require a transformation in Europe's current transport system. By 2050, key goals will include: Transport 2050: Commission outlines ambitious plan to increase mobility and reduce emissions Transport 2050: Commission outlines ambitious plan to increase mobility and reduce emissions
Capital looking to end gridlock in five years Capital looking to end gridlock in five years By Wang Wei (China Daily) Updated: 2010-12-09 08:01 Beijing has drawn up an ambitious plan to solve its gridlock problem and get traffic moving again. Liu Qi, the capital's Party chief, said the State Council has approved the city's traffic management plan in principle. The plan aims to relieve traffic jams during the coming five years. The detailed document, which will soon be made public, is understood to include such things as controls on the growing number of cars on city streets, the frequency with which vehicles can be used, planned improvements to public transportation, higher parking charges and the use of an intelligent traffic management system within the Fifth Ring Road.
Germans tighten road vehicle exhaust rules - Three German cities - Berlin, Cologne and Hanover - have introduced "environmental zones" to reduce fine particle emissions from traffic. Drivers now have to display a coloured sticker on their vehicle to enter the inner city zones. The colour depends on the pollutants the vehicle emits. The cities are gradually phasing in fines of 40 euros (£29;$58) for anyone caught driving without a sticker. Other German cities - but not all - plan to have such zones later in 2008.

Jan Gehl está cansado de ver cómo la planificación urbana pasa por alto al ser humano. “Los arquitectos y los planificadores de ciudades viven desconectados de las personas. Se proyectan enormes edificios que miran al cielo y se añaden más carriles para los coches, pero se olvidan completamente de lo que ocurre en el suelo. Ese espacio donde los humanos se mueven, viven e interactúan”. El arquitecto de las personas
How a planned highway can change a city, even if it never gets built. (1) - By Tom Vanderbilt I-478 is a pretty remarkable road: It is, for one thing, the longest tunnel on the U.S. Interstate Highway System. It's also the longest subaqueous facility. But I-478 conceals its charms; driving on it, there is nothing—not a single red, white, and blue shield—to tell you that you are doing so.
Vía 8664org. Propuesta para el waterfront de Louisville Solemos creer, y es efectivo, que una ciudad que quiere desarrollarse y crecer necesita autopistas: varias, rápidas y bien planificadas. Pero en siete ciudades norteamericanas están pensando precisamente lo contrario: echar abajo las carreteras, en su mayoría costeras, para dejar lugar a la edificación de casas y la habilitación de zonas de recreación. El motivo principal es que es costoso mantener las autopistas, no se obtienen suficientes ganancias por su uso y se pueden vender los terrenos para el desarrollo inmobiliario. Después del salto, conoce en qué ciudades y cómo planean implementarse estos proyectos urbanos. Proyecto urbano: ciudades norteamericanas planean reemplazar autopistas por espacios recreativos
Long commutes cause obesity, neck pain, loneliness, divorce, stress, and insomnia. - By Annie Lowrey This week, researchers at Umea University in Sweden released a startling finding: Couples in which one partner commutes for longer than 45 minutes are 40 percent likelier to divorce. The Swedes could not say why. Perhaps long-distance commuters tend to be poorer or less educated, both conditions that make divorce more common.

The Checkup - Traffic noise boosts stroke risk Can traffic noise be deadly? Well, not quite. But a new study indicates that chronic exposure to noise from cars and trucks can boost the risk for stroke, especially among the elderly. Mette Sørensen, senior researcher at the Institute of Cancer Epidemiology, Danish Cancer Society in Copenhagen, Denmark, and colleagues studied 51,485 people in the Copenhagen and Aarhus areas between 1993 and 1997. For every 10 decibels of noise, the stroke risk increased by 4 percent, they found.
