September 23rd & 25th, 2020
ARRB is pleased to host a series of online masterclasses on Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP), in collaboration with Road Solutions and DTV Capacity Building.
The method fosters a balanced development of all relevant transport modes, while encouraging a shift towards more sustainable modes. The plan puts forward an integrated set of technical, infrastructure, policy-based, and soft measures to improve performance and cost-effectiveness.
Many cities in Europe and beyond have successfully adopted the method in creating better and attractive cities to live, work and visit.
Each online masterclass will introduce the key elements of SUMP and how that will translate into value for your city and projects.
- Sustainable mobility planning in Australia
- Introduction to the SUMP method and key mechanisms
- City examples and cases
- SUMP opportunities for road safety, climate change and accessibility
- Concluding discussion and take-home messages
Australia’s strong population growth coupled with the increasing sprawl of our cities is impacting community health, liveability, as well as transport systems and increasing congestion. With over 85% of Australia’s population living in urban areas, finding relevant solutions is needed in order to unlock the full economic potential of current policies and trends.
The Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP) approach is well established in Europe, is seen as best practice and has been highly successful in delivering solutions to tackle current urban challenges: severe congestion, traffic deaths and injuries, poor air quality, noise emissions and high levels of CO2 emissions.
The SUMP method provides benefits for all actors from policy making to project delivery:
- Expand project budgets through cross sectoral cooperation
- Better return on investments on city projects through a holistic approach
- Increase road safety through planning and design
- Raise the success of city plans and projects, through a coherent approach covering all modes
- Reduce delays in planning and project delivery caused by uninformed stakeholder groups
- Create better, more attractive and happier cities.
