Summary of Alternatives

Alternatives that provide major structures in an arterial network are not acceptable for amenity because of visual blight and because of reduction of road capacity. Alternatives that do not attract sufficient mode change away from cars are not acceptable for amenity, despite the expedient current practice. Both these items should be fatal flaws.

The abject failure to adopt 2-phase intersections for capacity, to meter traffic and achieve green waves, to smooth flow at minor streets, to effectively provide a priority option for all traffic, (and to adopt lidar measurement for understanding of freeway traffic, or as detection of traffic for signal operation), in short, to make reasonable efforts to keep up, cries out for intervention. Any transport network can always be operated at optimum speed, and without congestion, but it does require a focus on serving customers.

Abject failure to evaluate the job creation potential of profitable aerial podcars, and the removal of jobs wasted by congestion and slow trips is crying out for intervention.
