Urban Insight is based on a series of insight reports written by Sweco experts. It is a long-term initiative with a different theme each year. The theme for 2018 is Urban Move, focusing on mobility and sustainable development of transports in Europe.
The report, Urban Mobility on a Human Scale – Promoting and Facilitating Active Travel in Cities, highlights the positive impacts that active travel modes (e.g. bicycles and walking) have on European cities and its inhabitants. Active travel modes should therefore be prioritised and have the best infrastructure. The report further examines four perspectives on cycling and walking and how the position of pedestrians and cyclists in cities can be improved.
