Learning Outcomes
With the succesful completion of the course the students will be familiar with the ways of solving the traffic problems in towns of today with a more efficient use of the existing transport infrastucture - in the framework of Traffic Management and Demand Management schemes- instead of the construction of new transport infrastructure. In addition they will be able to estimate the demand for parking in an urban area and to design the parking lots.
