How walking and cycling reduce congestion in two minutes: watch the new FLOW video!

The EU CIVITAS FLOW project has released an animated video to illustrate how cities can reduce congestion by investing in walking and cycling.

The video asks, “Safer roads, better public transport, less congestion, cleaner air – can we have it all?” The answer is yes, visionary cities invest in cycling and walking today. The video introduces the tools developed in the project and some striking results from Dublin.

The tools and resources include:

  • The impact assessment tool which evaluates the impacts of walking and cycling on cities
  • Real-life planning scenarios using improved transport modelling tools as tested by FLOW partner cities
  • The congestion-reducing measures contained in the newly published FLOW Quick Facts available in 7 languages

In a quote from Dublin Lord Mayor Brendan Carr, “The FLOW project teaches how to measure and model all modes of transport, including cycling and walking. The result? More realistic mobility plans and less congestion!”
