READING The Future of City Centres

1 For many of us, getting around in cities has undoubtedly become a great deal easier over
the last few years. In the past few decades there had been a growing need for city councils to
try and ease the traffic jams that were causing drivers’ frustration and creating problems of air
pollution in city centres. Changing the travelling habits of thousands of commuters is not an
easy thing to do, but in many places the strategies used to do this have been successful and
traffic in city centres has become much more manageable, while air quality has improved.
There are several reasons for this.

2 One is the increased use of ‘congestion charges’ for drivers of private vehicles using the
roads in city centres. This has not always been a popular solution with motorists who need to
travel into the city centre by car every day and don’t want to pay for this. Nevertheless, it has
definitely been effective in significantly reducing the amount of traffic traveling through city
centres. It has also been successful in improving the air quality in those areas, making them
healthier for pedestrians to walk in. Taxi and bus drivers are also happy with the charges as
the reduced traffic, which results from them, means they have more freedom to travel through
previously busy streets in a reasonable time.

3 Another solution for reducing the volume of traffic in the city centres has been the
introduction of pedestrianized zones. In these areas traffic is completely banned, apart from
essential vehicles like police cars or vans unloading goods. We were used to seeing some
pedestrianised streets in capital cities, for example around historical monuments, but now
whole areas in some places have becoming no-car zones. A positive effect of this idea is that it
has allowed the culture of street cafés and outdoor markets to flourish. These areas are now
pleasant places to socialise and shop because the air is cleaner and the streets are quieter
now that traffic is absent.

4 To enable commuters and visitors to access the town and city centres, many places now
operate a ‘park and ride’ system, where travelers leave their cars at a special car park in the
city suburbs and are brought into the centre by special buses or coaches. In many cases a
large amount of investment has gone into improving public transport services to encourage
people to leave their cars at home and travel by bus or train. In the largest cities extensions to
rail networks and underground systems have been built and additional bus services have been
introduced. Many of these solutions save people money, as well as reducing congestion.

5 Some commuters have decided to swap their cars for bicycles! Not only is cycling to work
good for their health, it’s also good for the environment. Councils have realised the advantages
of encouraging people to use bikes and have put money into creating networks of cycle lanes
to encourage more of their citizens to cycle more in greater safety.

6 Whilst getting around our cities is now easier than before and the problems of congestion
and pollution have been partly alleviated, people are still asking whether we could go further.
Ecologists are still demanding that more is done to reduce air pollution and hold up the
example of cities in Scandinavia, which are cleaner and greener because of their stricter
policies on traffic control.
