Title:
Traffic calming as one of the methods of traffic management, as illustrated by the “Dutch Town” project in Pulawy

Keywords:
traffic calming, road safety, Dutch Town Project, Puławy

Abstract:
Traffic calming by means of physical measures enables to perform traffic management functions in those areas of cities and towns where ITS are absent. Traffic calming is also effective in improving road safety, which is of outmost importance considering that each year in Poland around 5 thousand people get killed in road crashes and excessive vehicle speed remains the main contributory factor. Thanks to a reduced incidence of speeding and undesired transit movements that are kerbed by physical measures, traffic calming makes it possible to manage vehicle speeds and accessibility of the road network over a whole area as well as to prevent crashes and mitigate other transport-related inconvenience.
A comprehensive traffic calming area was built in Puławy. It covers a section of the regional road No 824 and the adjacent residential area of Włostowice. The design drawings of the so called Dutch Town Project performed by EKKOM Sp. z o.o. included the adjustment of several best practices of road safety engineering used in the Netherlands to the Polish conditions and this solution is unprecedented in many aspects. The redesign of the streets combined with traffic calming has helped to solve a number local problems and at the same time a showcase of traffic calming for training purpose was created
