Description Definition of rules and obejctives for the devolpment of the mobility in Carinthia
Major objectives Mobility
Short Summary The last overall traffic concept for Carinthia dates back to 1995 and is now over 20 years old. It is therefore time for a comprehen¬sive, new Mobility Master Plan for Carinthia. Considering the declining number of inhabitants and the budgetary restrictions of the province, development potential and new technologies must be recognised and innovative solutions implemented. The entire Carinthian Mobility Master Plan (MoMaK) consists of three parts: analysis, strategy and the areas of activity (including special measures). As these three detailed parts make up a total of about 250 pages, for ease of reading, the present condensed version was created.
Vision for the province of Carinthia
The vision for the province of Carinthia is, in the long term, to increase the percentage of people using public transport to 20% of overall traffic, to increase the percentage of cyclists and pedestrians to 40%, and to reduce motorised private transport from over 77% currently to 40%. By 2035, the percentages of people using public transport and cyclists should certainly double. Simultaneously, the accessibility of the province of Carinthia should be improved, and the environmental burden reduced. The mobility needs of Carinthians are paramount.
Guiding principles for the creation of the Mobility Master Plan 2035
Based on a comprehensive analysis of the traffic policy vision outlined by the province of Carinthia and the respective overarching strategies, 7 guiding principles have been defined, which include specific objec¬tives for the following 20 years. These objectives specify the direction in which traffic policy and traffic planning should be going by 2035, by applying the guiding principles. In order to be able to evaluate the progress made towards the set objectives, accompanying indicators were specified. For each of the following guiding principles there are related objectives and indicators.
Areas of activity and measures
In the next step, vision and strategy were used to derive 7 areas of activity and the associated measures to implement the strategy. Fields of activity combine different measures pertaining to all trans¬port modes, thus representing a topical classification of the individual measures. There is interaction and cross-linking between the individual measures. Each measure contributes to the achievement of the de¬fined goals and is prioritized accordingly (see “Prioritized Measures”).
Monitoring and controlling the implementation of strategy
This report is also to be submitted for information to the state par¬liament of Carinthia. Moreover, the MoMaK is to be subjected to monitoring. For that purpose, it is the intention to evaluate its objec¬tives and its measures every five years. This evaluation is to be carried out internally by Division 7 - Economics, Tourism, Infrastructure and Mobility with the support of other administrative divisions. In a world of constant change and super-rapid innovations, it makes sense to ques¬tion and if need be adapt the guiding principles, goals and measures - perhaps also the indicators - on the basis of new economic, social and technical developments. For the consistent pursuit of this subject, the installation of a mobility centre of excellence on a federal-state level is recommend¬ed.
Process of the strategy development
On the initiative of the provincial member of government, Rolf Holub, and the unanimous de¬cision by the Carinthian provincial government on 8th April 2014, it was decided that the currently valid traffic concept should be evaluated and replaced by a new overall mobil¬ity concept. On 7th May 2015, the development of the MoMaK 2035 was officially launched. In a broadly based participation process, all relevant stakeholders and the gen¬eral population have been involved in developing the Carinthian Mobility Master Plan for the year 2035. Throughout the entire duration of the project, four work groups worked together on diagnosis, strate¬gy, and measures with external and internal experts in the Carinthian provincial government. Inter¬mediate results from the work groups were presented several times during the course of the project to an advisory board especially created for the purpose, and their responses were fed back over the further course of the project.
Parallel to the work groups, there were more than 40 citizen meetings in Carinthian municipalities. Citizens were presented the analysis and the exemplary strategic main areas of action, and they, in turn, presented their needs and ideas. This feedback from the citizens was then incorporated into the MoMaK project.
