|GP: Accessibility scheme for the conference centre and pedestrian zone - Hungary|
This measure is also contribute to protect the inner city of Debrecen from motorized traffic.
Objectives/ Innovative Aspects
With the establishing of the new conference centre and its underground car park, the actual pedestrian zone can reach further dimensions. The impact area covers the dense commercial area with a lot of commercial units as well as destinations related to social, religious and administrative activities.
* building the conference centre
* The new conference centre has been finished in February, 2006.
The underground car park can serve as a „park and walk” facility, than the foreseeable impact of de-motorisation can reach further than the actual pedestrian zone itself. By offering a direct connection to the pedestrian zone for the conference centre it can be assumed that participants arriving for a 2-3 day event with their own car will rather walk to the city centre and access the tram at stops for sightseeing, rather than using their own cars.
The above project is part of the CIVITAS - MOBILIS initiative
