Networking collective services and places of historical, cultural and environmental significance along the Strada Regina itinerary
Highlighting the thorough network of pedestrian and bicycle itineraries in the three towns being considered, which have already been connected by means of the "Strada Regina" (Agno-Bioggio-Manno), and promote it as an alternative to vehicle mobility for daily itineraries and journeys for work, recreation, tourism and for shopping. The objective is to make these movements competitive with the individual motor vehicles traffic.
Aims:The objective of the project is the promotion of projects and financial public investments according to the principles of sustainable development. With a view to allowing recognition, enhancement and networking of infrastructures which already exist in the area, the aim is to promote and foster slow mobility. Promoting gentle mobility also means implementing active policies for health promotion, thus bearing part of the external costs generated by motor vehicle individual mobility. Specific attention will be devoted to SUP, which at the moment is not provided with any specific connection between the various university buildings and with nearby towns of Manno and Bioggio. These factors hinder the creation of a real university Campus and possible synergies between the academic world and the lively manufacturing businesses which are present in the Basso Malcantone region.
Realization:Preliminary definition of the network of communal pedestrian paths, carried out in close collaboration with town technical offices, checking the use of these itineraries along the whole route, recognition and networking of points of interest and infrastructures along the routes, networking of walkways, networking of recreation areas. The following activities are mainly carried out by an ad hoc working group in collaboration with Infovel, and will mainly imply the definition of specific targets and the promotion of interesting solutions aimed at pedestrian mobility.
Involved:Promoters and authors of the project: local Agenda 21 group Agno-Bioggio-Manno. External consultants: Infovel and any ad hoc professionals. Wider circle: Professional university school (hereinafter SUP), various economic parties (manufacturing industrial and advanced service area) in the three municipalities, since these are the main generators of motor vehicle individual traffic. Logistic support: Malcantone Region.
