EPOMM - the European Platform on Mobility Management* - has released its February 2019 e-update on the topic of 'Tackling Urban Road Congestion'. The theme is described as follows:
Traffic congestion is not just an inconvenience. It is on the rise. Traffic congestion can cause health-damaging air pollution, high stress and also impact the economy. Therefore, a significant reduction of urban road congestion and an improvement in the financial and environmental sustainability of urban transport can bring major benefits for the economy, the attractiveness of cities and citizens' wellbeing.
We hope that with this EPOMM e-update we can provide you with some insights on urban road congestion, and with innovative approaches to tackle it.
Act TravelWise copy-edits the English version of the e-update and distributes it within the UK.
* Note that 'mobility management' is the European term equating roughly to transport demand management (TDM) - the 'soft measures' aimed at travel behaviour change away from single-occupancy car use, sometimes referred to as 'smarter choices' or 'smarter travel' in the UK.
