Though Copenhagen is trying to set the standards for a green city, thousands of cars clog its main traffic arteries during rush hour on a bi-daily basis. This project provided and evaluated (for Miljøpunkt Amager) a collection of plausible scenarios that focus on reducing motor vehicle congestion in Central Copenhagen, while preserving existing green space. The team conducted interviews, calculated cost and flood capacity, and analyzed traffic models to establish a compelling argument for alternatives to the Eastern Ring Road (E-R) and Ladegårdsåen tunnel proposals. Additionally, the report provides an in-depth discussion of seven tunnel scenarios along with recommendations for a modified combination of the two tunnel routes implemented in conjunction with a congestion charge zone.
