Re: 30kph in towns/cities survey

Talked with some work colleagues that know a bit more about this, its their job.

Their worry is the unintended consequences. If commuting times become longer, living outside the city becomes less attractive, even more people than today would like to live in the city and no surprise at all....even higher rent. The whole thing can make the city less livable when the goal was to make it livable in first place.

Coming from the other side of the Atlantic I'm really surprised people complains about noise because this is a feature of the absence of urban zoning. If in the same block there are shops, dance schools and apartments, of course noisy trucks have to deliver goods and pick up waste, and people makes noise in gyms and dance schools.

I'm not saying the urban development model of suburbs and huge highways and shopping malls 20km away from city center is better. Just saying that the origin of noise it's not "cars" but mixed use urban zoning. It's sooooo convenient to have a Migros just downstairs....that has a price, pay it or go live outside the city. Fun thing is snowflakes would complain about loud farming machinery.
