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. VTI has made a study in the municipality of Lidköping to get the public opinion on traffic in the city center. A questionnaire was sent to a sample of all inhabitants in the municipality of Lidköping aged 18-–75 years. The questionnaire contains three different scenarios for traffic design in Lidköping urban core.

Twenty six per cent of the respondents think that Lidköping city centre should be more adapted to car traffic following the scenario A) Better accessibility and more street space for cars in Lidköping city centre. In this alternative street design first and foremost cares for good access for cars and ample parking space with low fees.

The alternative B) Lower speeds in Lidköping city centre has been selected by about 45 per cent. The inner city streets are still open to traffic to the same extent as today, but the space motor vehicles are permitted to use is less and the number of parking lots along the streets has been reduced.

The even more car restrictive option C) a city centre with more street space for walking, cycling and buses has been chosen by 28 per cent of the respondents. People living in the area are allowed to drive on certain streets to and from parking spaces. Service vehicles such as taxis, vehicles for disabled people, goods deliveries, etcetera, may use certain streets with respect to the conditions of pedestrians and cyclists, and are allowed to use temporary parking spaces in the city centre at the designated locations.
