Reporting from the FLOW project
Walk21 is a technical partner in the European Union's Horizon 2020 FLOW project and is helping to develop new tools for cities, businesses and decision-makers to improve conditions for walking within the context of urban congestion.
The mission of the FLOW project is to put walking and cycling on an equal footing with motorised modes by developing a user-friendly methodology to assess the effectiveness of walking and cycling measures in addressing urban road congestion.
The FLOW partner cities will pilot an assessment tool that looks at the congestion impact of walking and cycling measures as well as improved transport modelling simulation tools. We are working with 6 partner cities, 9 exchange cities and 25 follower cities across Europe with very different challenges and contexts but all needing to address congestion and enhance conditions for walking.
