Tripoli ‘Green Belt’ Mobility Master Plan
Systematica was appointed for the Urban Mobility Plan within the Green Belt Area of the city of Tripoli. The work methodology is strongly based on a comprehensive and multi-disciplinary approach to traffic issues that goes beyond the technical and legislative considerations and addresses the relationship between urban functions and their implications on the overall mobility system.
The consolidated Tripoli urban framework, already historically well-established and structurally settled, narrowed the scope and allowed to focus on detailed matters, such as:
• The pedestrianization of the “Martyrs Square” on the Medina south-east side that, together with the downgrade of the middle section of Al Kurnish road (from a huge urban highway to a boulevard linking the waterfront to the City) and the implementation of one-way loops reducing the crossing private traffic, gives back the Italian Neighbourhood of the Capital to Citizens’ enjoyment;
• The maximization of the accessibility to Tripoli CBD (on the west side of the City centre) and other key travels generators within the study area, through the implementation of a BRT system as an alternative in a short term and then to integrate the still ongoing project of the three Metro lines;
• The reconfiguration and suitable dimensioning of the First and Second Ring roads useful to get the suburban traffic moving.
As a result, the “Tripoli Green Belt Mobility Master Plan” outlined and illustrated the vision for an effective turning point in transport and traffic planning and management, strongly based on the promotion of new public transport services, besides an efficient parking and taxi management, the regeneration of the main City’s public spaces and the possible future promotion of cycling, aiming at the creation of high quality urban environment.
