In order to tackle climate change and improve quality of life, cities across Europe are aiming to increase the use of active modes of transport, reduce carbon emissions and improve citizen safety. Traffic calming – using physical infrastructure and other measures to reduce vehicle speed and number – is widely used as a method of limiting the impact of motor vehicles, but implementation can be challenging and can often face resistance.

As a result of project demand, the Interreg Europe Policy Learning Platform organised an online discussion on the topic of traffic calming measures, bringing together participants from the  e-SMARTEC, INTENSIFY, MATCH-UP, OptiTrans, REFORM and TRAM projects to discuss good practices and lessons for rolling out effective measures.
