MORE - Multi-modal Optimisation of Road-space in Europe

The road as an ecosystem. We are changing the way we see and use road space. The MORE project develops design concepts for street spaces.

 

 

Corridor roads are under pressure from increased mobility. Without mitigations, this may lead to delays 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. Their efficient functioning is vital to the local and national economy and the success of the TEN-T. MORE will develop and implement procedures for the design of urban corridor roads. MORE will test these in five urban feeder-roads of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T): Budapest, Constanta, Lisbon, London, and Malmö. MORE will develop design concepts that acknowledge such variety in economic and social interests, considering the needs of all road users.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 769276.

Delivering tools assisting cities in their road space design process

MORE develops design concepts that encourage street activity and reduce traffic dominance by considering the needs of all road users. MORE explores experimental options such as flexible use of kerb space and dynamic allocation of road space to accommodate different functions.

Enhancing realistic representation with PTV Vissim

PTV Vissim is going to be extended in order to achieve a more realistic representation of kerbside activities, ‘place’-related activities, interaction between different road users, and dynamic roadspace allocation solutions

Development of an appraisal tool for the assessment of design options

Moreover, together with University College London (UCL) and Technical University of Dresden PTV will work on the development of a new framework for assessing comprehensive urban roadspace design options.
