The METREX Network Group SURE (Strategic Urban Region Eurodelta) commissioned a study on the future of sustainable mobility in the Amsterdam-Brussels-Cologne-Lille area.
Around the lower reaches of the rivers Rhine, Meuse and Scheldt lies the highly urbanized megaregion of the Eurodelta. Its 45 million inhabitants could potentially reach each other within three hours of travel. Clean and fast connections between the megaregion’s towns and cities would not only strengthen its function as a global hub of goods, services and knowledge, but also considerably improve people’s quality of life.
Together with ten local and regional authorities from the Eurodelta, the European research programme ESPON conducted a study on the potential for more sustainable mobility in the area. It outlines four effective policy packages. Now it is time to explore what role stakeholders can take in implementing these. This booklet aims to help pave the way for this exploration. Following a summary of the study, you will find five conversations with decision makers on different levels of power in the Eurodelta. Each of them reflects on the study’s findings and identifies opportunities and attention points for putting the measures into practice.
