Transportation and Traffic Management for Tokyo 2020 Games
We participated in the 141st City Planning Roundtable “Transportation and Traffic Management for Tokyo 2020 Games”. The lecture was given by Mr. Masayuki Kanda, who is also a part-time lecturer at our college.
I was interested in TDM (Transportation Demand Management) and TSM (Transportation System Management), because I had been studying MFD, a theory to understand urban traffic conditions on a macro scale, but I was disappointed that I could not hear what specific measures would be taken. It seems that the goal of road traffic management is to reduce traffic by 15% on weekdays. I am looking forward to seeing how it will be realized. (Hirabayashi)
