Abstract

In October 2008 the Copenhagen municipality and Miljoepunkt Noerrebro (Agenda 21) began experimental road segment closures on Noerrebrogade. The goal of this project was to investigate changes in quality of life that have resulted from the closures. The team concluded that traffic, pollution, and noise were reduced. Perceived safety was increased and the atmosphere became calmer on Noerrebrogade. Some businesses were negatively impacted by the closure. Overall, the closures have positively affected the health-related quality of life on Noerrebrogade.
