Taming the Flow — Better Traffic and Safer Neighbourhoods
Recognizing that conventional approaches to suburban development are not sustainable, municipalities are re-examining neighbourhood layout and land-use concepts with the goal of replacing car trips with walking, cycling or public transit. This study looks at street layouts and plans needed to facilitate both walkability and the smooth flow of vehicular traffic. It highlights the Fused Grid model, which blends desirable elements of conventional and grid-based street layouts and gives priority to walking and cycling at the neighbourhood scale, while, at the same time, achieves an efficient movement of cars for the longer destinations.
