Barcelona's plan to give streets back to residents

Superblocks to the rescue: Barcelona?s plan to give streets back to residents | Cities | The Guardian

More ambitious than Paris!

"The Catalan capital’s radical new strategy will restrict traffic to a number of big roads, drastically reducing pollution and turning secondary streets into ‘citizen spaces’ for culture, leisure and the community."

Streets in black will have normal car traffic while streets in green will have restrictions on car traffic like reduced lanes, forced turns, and a 10 km/h (6 mph) speed limit.
