Project Description

Becoming the economic leader of the region , Warsaw has been in a way forced to implement sustainable development policy, which is to adopt and implement transport improvement strategy. This will create a strong structural basis for even greater growth of the city and living conditions in respect for the environment . It is important that the transport system, cease to be a barrier hindering the development of the city and that it becomes a key mechanism contributing to the improvement of all aspects of life and the one which meets the expectations and aspirations of the citizens of Warsaw. The implementation of the 'city behind city' gives the capital a satellite city importance. Warsaw deurbanisation in all directions reflects its problems of communication and transport in the suburbs . The share of public transport travel beyond the cordon area of the center is more than 54%. This number is however reduced in the case of commuting suburban area where a significant percentage chooses individual transport. This means that one will seek to implement as soon as possible as many tasks and activities, as most urgent and important for the improvement of the transport system of the city (the priorities of realization). Since the transport policy defines the objective directions - long-term, one have to reckon with the fact that problems` solution can occur in many years. Apart from the problem of communicating places/districts located in the vicinity of the city there is an even bigger problem of commuters from outlying cities within a radius of up to 100km away from the center. Problems substantially reproduce the suburbs, however, the situation occurs on a larger scale. Lack of adequate infrastructure and connections will increase private transport, resulting from a desire to satisfy one`s own needs. The main centers of this type are Minsk Mazowiecki, Legionowo, Sochaczew, Skierniewice and Grójec. History of urbanism towns transformation shows how much influence means of communication have. Current needs of residents determined the enrichment or reorganization of the street grid. Over the years, the city has developed a number of schemes:
-city for people
-city park
-city for cars
The present trend of sustainable development emphasizes the unity of man, architecture and nature, without sacrificing convenient and developed individual transport at the same time. The main architectural assumptions became a fact, but improvement of moving around the city is still a challenge. Based on the research of William J. Mitchell, a futuristic model of transport , City Car, was invented.
