Enhancing Resource Sustainability by Transforming Urban and Suburban Transportation
Institute of Transportation Studies, Working Paper Series from Institute of Transportation Studies, UC Davis
Urban regions worldwide are dominated by the need to provide for large numbers of high-speed, high-mass vehicles. Current strategies result in congestion, social fragmentation, and environmental degradation. An alternative urban design is presented that incorporates two separate road systems: one for light, low-speed vehicles and another for heavy, high-speed vehicles. This design enhances travel efficiency and sense of community, while minimizing energy use, water pollution, and nonrenewable resource consumption.
