The proposal for the Metropolitan Transport Authority’s Mobility Master Plan 2020–2025 (pdM) was presented on 20 September in the Born Cultural and Memorial Centre (CCM).
The aim of the plan is to create a more sustainable, efficient, inclusive, fair mobility model. It covers the mobility of people and goods over the next five years in Barcelona Metropolitan Area.
During the event, the objectives, motivations and main areas on which the pdM is based were described. The first area, “Tools for healthy mobility”, was presented by Laia Pagès, Executive and Scientific Manager of CARNET, an initiative coordinated by the CIT UPC. Laia Pagès formed part of the team that drew up the plan.
This first area includes a set of measures to reduce the external impacts of private transport such as congestion, air pollution and noise. The main measures in this area are Low Emission Zones and Active Measures for Parking Management, which will be the basis of a transition to a more sustainable model of mobility than the current one. To sum up, this area has an impact on the need for a modal change in the general public to improve health and well-being.
