Mobilissimus has completed the status analysis of the mobility plan for the Köztársaság Square school in Törökbálint. The area around the primary school (grades 1-4) is very busy with cars at the start of the school day and when the children leave in the afternoon, causing serious congestion in the morning and even more serious parking problems in the afternoon. The situation has become intolerable for the residents of the area and problematic for parents and teachers. The designation of the Budapest-Balaton cycle route through the square has brought additional, previously unknown conflicts.
In the situation assessment, we counted traffic, visited the school, consulted with residents' representatives, prepared an online questionnaire for parents to find out about their school-going habits, and asked children how they go to school and how they would like to. The study presenting the results is available here (in Hungarian).
The next stage of the planning process, following the status analysis, will be to draw up a development concept that can respond to the main problems, deliver tangible results and provide a long-term basis for improvements towards more sustainable mobility in and around Köztársaság square.
