Evaluation of internal traffic access and parking in the areas of the major polyclinic hospital
This study addresses issues related to the reorganisation and management of vehicles parking within the areas of the Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico in the city centre of Milan.
The area, currently occupied by construction sites for the new buildings, is characterised by very limited parking spaces and it is affected by frequent phenomena of irregular parking that affect its proper and safe use for the various functions, particularly those related to emergencies.
The study analyses in detail the current demand for mobility through: the administration of a questionnaire to employees concerning individual travel, analysis of vehicles and bicycle/pedestrian input/output flows from the area and an in-situ analysis campaign of the supply and demand for parking.
Based on the solid reconstruction of the current state, innovative solutions were proposed with regard to parking management, through the implementation of an innovative access control and parking management system. This system is characterised by a high technological content based on the control of both access (through a number plate reading system) and individual parking spaces (through the installation of special sensors on the ground). The new system will be able to control both access and parking vehicles, allowing the automatic detection of any abuses in terms of access and parking.
