Project description

As the widespread land-use pattern of Flanders and the low intention of Flemings to move close to their job results in high car use, it is important to trigger a relocation of people to compact, mixed-use neighbourhoods by applying travel-related measures. Doing so, most activities would become within walking or cycling distance or would become accessible by public transport.
