This second book of the series on Transport Systems and Traffic Engineering addresses operational, safety, costs, benefits, control and geometrical aspects associated with street design and roadway network planning in urban areas.
The design features and planning goals consider urban-sensitive solutions for coping with motorized traffic, pedestrians and public transport passengers. Great emphasis is placed on the critical interactions involved with traffic safety problems.
The included papers offer a variety of sample studies and developed projects and provide useful references to academics and traffic engineers.
One of the most noteworthy characteristics of this book is that the reported experiences come from different national policies and standard requirements as well as local guidelines. As such it provides a well-structured and consistent book that will be of great interest to those working in this field.
