MORE is developing procedures for the comprehensive co-design of busy urban main road corridors feeding the European TEN-T road network. It aims to accommodate their current and future multi-modal and multi-functional requirements and to address severe problems such as congestion, sustainability, noise, air pollution, safety and security. The development of such procedures is enabling city authorities to make the best use of the limited road-space by:
• Optimally allocating the available capacity in a dynamic way, both in space and time
• Taking advantage of advances in big data and digital eco-systems, in new vehicle technologies and operating systems, in materials and construction technologies, and in dynamic traffic signing and lane marking capabilities.
MORE is developing design guidelines and four computer-based tools to assist in the road-space allocation design process, covering: option generation, stakeholder engagement, micro-simulation of road user behaviour, and comprehensive, multi-modal appraisal.
