The metropolis of Munich is growing by approx. one percent of its population every year. In order to cover the housing demand, the city has implemented the urban development plan Munich North-East, with the goal of creating space for 30,000 residents and 10,000 jobs on an area of around 600 hectares. Mobility plays a decisive role in the development of a sustainable and city-friendly settlement concept.
PTV Transport Consult develops integrated transport concepts that allow cities to meet their increasing mobility demands in an environmentally friendly and city-compatible manner.
PTV Transport Consult’s planning experts were responsible for transport development planning. To this end, the development area had to be strongly aligned to sustainable means of transport and the existing road transport network was expanded as environmentally compatible and resource-saving as possible.
The development of such an extensive planning process consists of numerous individual work packages, which are briefly described below:
- Defining a traffic mission statement
- Carrying out traffic surveys
- Creating a PTV VISUM model for motorised private transport and public transport
- Developing integrated transport concepts for urban planning variations
- Determining the traffic volume for several urban development concepts
- Developing a multi-criteria evaluation catalogue
- Determining performance capabilities / capacities
- Participating in public workshops
Three development concepts
Three development concepts were devised, which differed significantly in their design and focus. Their transport and mobility networks were also different from each other.
In a final planning process, together with settlement, landscape and open space planning, integral implementation concepts were worked out, which took into account legal, infrastructural and temporal requirements.
The study clarified the following points from a mobility perspective:
- Integration of the north-east of the city into the existing mobility network
- Expansion of public transport as a basis for sustainable mobility development
- Promotion of local mobility through central infrastructure measures
- Set-up of mobility and information stations
- Development of a road network that can be adapted to long-term requirements
- Possibility of integrating new, future-proof technologies
