Impacts of traffic to and from shopping centers

At the 23rd International Transport and Air Pollution Conference on May 15-17, 2019 in Thessaloniki a poster was presented that reports the results of the case study on the assessment of traffic impacts to and from shopping centers and on collective transport planning, carried out in the course of activities to support the preparation of the Regione Abruzzo Air quality management plan

The conclusion of the work is that particular attention must be given to the aspects of mitigating the effects of the presence of centers. Priority should be given to the development of transport, especially rail, for shopping centers. The procedures relating to strategic environmental assessment must be applied to planning procedures for areas suitable for hosting large sales areas.
