This case tackles the upgrade of a central axis in Moscavide that needs to combine conventional traffic, the pedestrian zones and soft and sustainable mobility solutions.
The transformation included a participative process to give voice to local stakeholders, neighbours, business, and citizenship in general.
After the participative process a consensus was achieved including the following measures: (a) two road lanes transformed into just one, (b) increase of the pedestrian area (c) and inclusion of street furniture, small gardens and equipment. This activity was not just about increasing the quality of life and environmental benefits but empowering the population with information and tools connecting them to the Municipality.
Using a participatory governance process to reform a principal axis of Moscavide, with the aim of improving the quality of life not only for the people who live there, but also for those who work and somehow need to spend some time on that avenue.
It was also studied the air quality before and after the intervention, confirming a decrease in environmental impact.
