Straße der Zukunft
Future streetscapes in urban districts

Design and testing of resource-efficient model streets for cities of the future

Future cities are resource-saving, energy-efficient, and offer a high quality of life. Currently, however, cities are often characterized by traffic, high noise and pollution levels and barriers for pedestrians and cyclists. Public streetscapes in particular must be designed in a sustainable way.

Objectives and procedure
The objective of the project is to help municipalities to plan and build resource-efficient streets. To this end, future needs, potential uses and requirements for streetscapes will be assessed from different perspectives (mobility, water, urban planning, etc.). Based on model streets, urban development processes will be optimized and new solutions will be tested.

Expected results and transfer
The partner cities of Ludwigsburg and Erlangen with their local networks will play an active role in the project and thus ensure a practice-oriented approach, implementation and continuity. As a basis for the future planning of streets in cities, the model streets will show how future cities can be shaped sustainably in the long term.
