Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan of the city of Prato (Italy)
TRT, on the basis of a tendering procedure, has been selected by the City of Prato to support their offices in the preparation of the SUMP.
The Plan takes as reference methodology the “SUMP guidelines” prepared by the EU Commission.
The SUMP process has been developed in four steps:
- the reconstruction of the mobility-related framework and its environmental, social and economic impacts;
- the identification of the strategies that guided the construction of the SUMP scenarios, as a result of the background analysis, the selected objectives and the priorities raised through public listening (survey and focus groups);
- the design of two different scenarios: reference solution and SUMP scenario;
- the evaluation procedure, implementing an ex ante transport model (AIMSUN) and a policy evaluation procedure (MOMOS) derived from the Urban Road Map 2030 tool.
The SUMP of Prato has been presented to the local community, stakeholders and decision makers in October 2016. After the formal approval by the Municipality the SUMP document will start the implementation process.
