Regional Action Plan the Role of Modal Interchange to Foster Low Carbon Urban Mobility
4.3 Regional Action 1
Regional Action 1 – Implementation of new recommendation stage into the implementation process of projects funded under Priority 5 (6e) – Public Realm Improvements
Thecurrent policy instrument, SEROPPriority5 (6e), is concerned with improvements in the public realm. SRA are now seeking to introduce a second stage in the implementation process by creating a framework to review approved projects, which will incorporate recommendations to integrate low carbon urban mobility and multi modal improvements into projects funded under this priority. With the assistance of SRA’s Transport Consultants 13 , SRA designed a new framework for this implementation stage attached in Appendix 1. This framework was originally inspired by the County of Northeim good practice Revitalization “Ilmebahn” which has a 2-stage process that they used to assess the viability of each disused rail track and to decide on which rail tracks to bring back into service. This good practice was introduced to SRA at the site visit and staff exchange in Northeim, Germany in June 2019. Following a transferability workshop with SRA’s stakeholders in October 2019, SRA sought further specific details on this process and in particular a copy of the comparative analysis and viability assessment framework from the County of Northeim. The new framework also incorporated the good practice Intelligent Crosswalks – energetic efficiency and road safety from the Municipality of Funchal at points of high footfall by pedestrians/tourists to improve pedestrian and cycle safety. The intelligent Crosswalk will provide a means for improving connectivity close to public transport interface. This good practice was introduced at the site visit and staff exchange in Funchal, Portugal in February 2019. Following a transferability workshop with SRA’s stakeholders in October 2019, SRA sought further specific details on costs for implementation and on the success of these good practices. SRA also incorporated the Good Practice - Boosting Multi- Modality: universal and inclusive mobility for pedestrians from the Municipality of Funchal into the framework to include recommendations to the pedestrian network through the enlargement of pedestrian areas with pavements that meet the needs of pedestrianswithmobility issues to createmore accessible and inclusivepedestrianspaces. Thisgoodpracticewas introduced to SRA at the site visit and staff exchange in Funchal, Portugal in February 2019. SRA saw first-hand how Funchal, Portugal implemented universal and inclusive mobility for pedestrians. Following a transferability workshop with SRA’s stakeholders in October 2019, SRA sought further specific details how this good practice increased inclusive mobility by requesting specific and additional details from the owner of this good practice.
