The significance of pedestrian mobility as shown by the example of the city of Gdynia
AbstractThe specificity of the cities and the dynamics of the various processes which occur within them result in conflicts within the urban space, the effect of which is, among others, suburbanisation bearing negative consequences on sustainable transport and urban mobility. The analysis of EU policies has served as a basis for determining the increasing role of pedestrians in shaping of sustainable mobility policies. The significance of pedestrian mobility in city centres is discussed using the example of the city of Gdynia. The articles present findings of research into the volume and the structure of traffic on one of the main roads in the centre of Gdynia. The challenges which need to be addressed when carrying out of complex research into pedestrian mobility have also been determined.
