An approach as much as a set of tools, network management involves permitting and restricting motor vehicle movement in conjunction with other modes of transport and street users, including tools that limit access for delivery vehicles and local traffic to specific streets.
Parking and Curbside Management
Curbside management is critical to the economic and social success of streets. Managing parking is a strong form of demand management. In many central cities, parking availability is the only real constraint on motor vehicle demand, discouraging their use and therefore reducing the volume of traffic.
Managing the interaction between different street users at intersections and other crossings is a major area of traffic engineering and design practice, with profound implications for safety. Intersection operations can support urban streets by placing the safety of sustainable modes first.
