Webinar Overview

In this webinar, we will introduce the Multimodal Network Management Framework, developed and used in the Netherlands. We will describe the steps involved on how to come from policy objectives to operational traffic management for a multimodal network and we will illustrate this with examples from practise.

Nowadays traffic management is a complex task. Policy choices have to be made and operational decisions have to be taken on how to deal with car, trucks, busses, bicycles and pedestrians in the network and how to keep them safe and flowing, especially where they interact. Without a clear and transparent framework to base these decisions upon, problems and arbitrariness could occur. Sustainable regional and urban mobility requires a common, supported vision on the desired use of the different networks. A multimodal network management framework offers such a vision. It is a translation from mobility policy into and clear and unambiguous description of the desired situation for the different networks. In the Netherlands a guideline has been developed which describes a stepwise approach. This approach is presented and illustrated with examples from practise.
