Setting up of an Urban Transport Plan in Valence Romans Déplacements (VRD, France)

Jul 31, 2012

The Transport Plan of VRD has two principal originalities: to be elaborated with a wide consultation with population but also to define the scenarios according to their CO2 emissions.

Since December 2011 VRD, which covers more than 40 municipalities and accounts around 220'000 inhabitants, has launched its Transport Plan aiming at making an inventory of transports requirements as well for inhabitants and for freight. This work will be carried on during the first six-month period 2012 to arrive rather quickly at the end of the year at the formulation of scenarios which will be in particular built by measuring the greenhouse gas emissions of the actions suggested. The objective of VRD is to settle an Urban Transport Plan which is concerted as well as with the local authorities as the population itself. An environmental evaluation is elaborated in parallel which will sustain the state of the arts and will make it possible to propose actions in the field of transports having a minimum impact. Two additional originalities of the Urban Transport Plan are its close articulation with the work initiated in the framework of the SCOT (Urban Master Plans, urban planning documents aiming at fighting against urban spreading on a vast territory of more than 100 municipalities) but also the urban and rural nature of its territory (with an urban area of more than 100'000 inhabitants and a rural environment of great quality.
