Abstract:

This study aim to define strategies for influencing of shifting from motorised to non-motorised modes of transport in the framework of a sustainable urban transport. A growing number of Asian cities have high numbers of private car making up the majority of traffic. This has resulted in the negative impact of traffic congestion, road safety, air pollution and climate change. Many policy measures to reduce these problems have been implemented, such as widening the roads, limiting speed, upgrading the motorcycle lanes and upgrading public transport, but there are no measures and encouragement for the provision of non-motorised modes of transport (cycling and walking) in Malaysia. These modes of transport are seldom acknowledged by planners and policymakers. This study suggests areas for reforming the traditional views of highway provision and touches upon the framework for cycling and walking strategies.
