Pedestrianization of the city center Torrelodones, Juan Socas | BETA
Car free city centre in Utrecht | In recent years we could see trials with pedestrian zones in cities around the world. The New York “Plaza’s” are very successful and spreading. Other cities are lagging behind, or they are just waking up, like London, where “Problems with congestion, pollution and safety need to be resolved”. Pedestrianization would help there. In the Netherlands almost all cities already have a pedestrianized city centre.
