Project name: (Rethinking the dEsign of streets And pubLic spaces to Leverage the mOdal shift to Climate-friendly Active Transport Everywhere)
Project Acronym: REALLOCATE
Duration: 05.01.2023 – 04.30.2027.
A drastic decrease in transport emissions of 55% by 2030 and 90% by 2050 is required for European cities to reach climate neutrality. This is hindered by inconvenient mobility infrastructure, inadequate services, and insufficient governance for short-distance travel, negatively impacting active modes’ safety and security. REALLOCATE’s main objective is to pave the way towards climate-neutral, safe, inclusive, and smart European cities through integrated and innovative sustainable urban mobility solutions that will address the needs of diverse groups and communities while rebalancing street space allocation. The project will empower 10 twinned Mission Cities (Gothenburg-Tampere, Heidelberg-Utrecht, Lyon-Warsaw, Budapest-Zagreb, Barcelona-Bologna) by providing horizontal thematic expertise, supporting them to build a local innovation ecosystem to develop and deploy zero-emission, shared, inclusive, active and human-centered mobility interventions. Pilots in 15 urban and peri-urban unsafe areas will demonstrate innovative urban space management and reallocation strategies for sustainable modes (with a specific focus on active modes), having in mind safety, inclusivity, affordability, and a just transition to climate neutrality overall. Solutions include innovative urban design, behavioural nudging, smart technology, and data-driven solutions to reduce actual and perceived road safety risks, all contributing to achieving climate neutrality by 2030. The pilots will be the learning and testing environments for integrated approaches to foster knowledge transfer and collaborative learning to staff in cities through mentoring and capacity building, knowledge exchange, twinning, and work shadowing. The project’s impact will be exponentially increased by engaging 10 Cascade Cities in capacity-building activities and providing them with replication packages and guidelines resulting in implementation plans for replicating at least one of the innovative solutions piloted.
The aim of the project is therefore to design inclusive, safe, affordable, and sustainable urban mobility in line with safe, climate-neutral mobility systems. Its main result is that it provides BKK and the capital with the opportunity to test innovative traffic safety and complex public space renewal methods.
The consortium is composed of 28 partners from 12 countries.
