Invånarnas syn på den framtida trafiken i Helsingborgs stadskärna: resultat från en enkätundersökning

Download

A large majority of people living in the city of Helsingborg are supporters of less car traffic and parking in the city centre, provided that the lower access for cars is instantly combined with better opportunities to walk, cycle and travel by bus in the same area. Most residents in Helsingborg think that such a change of traffic priorities makes Helsingborg a more attractive city to live in.

The design of the transport system in urban centres should be based on a balance between different modes of transport that is in line with the inhabitants’ opinion. But there is no functioning market where this balance can be settled. Therefore, the municipal transport and urban planning must take responsibility for the design of traffic and priorities for different modes of transport in the city centre. The question is which information and knowledge that the municipality can use to make the right decisions when social dilemmas distort the possibility to interpret actual behaviour and revealed preferences as the actual demand? One alternative is to design surveys with different alternative scenarios and in that way find out people's perception, the method chosen for the study presented in this report.

A questionnaire was sent to a sample of all inhabitants in the municipality of Helsingborg aged 18–75 years. The questionnaire contains three different scenarios for traffic design in Helsingborg urban core.
