Urban Accelerator approach used in workshops in Cape Town
MOVE Mobility and the DASUDA team were asked to facilitate three workshops on the elaboration of TOD (Transit Oriented Development) in Cape Town. The Urban Accelerator approach was used to make planning a pro-active steering tool for decision makers to create tangible measures leading to actual improvements in the urban domain. Measures that will have a ripple effect on their direct surroundings will be defined as priorities. This approach is called the Urban Accelerator.
In the first workshop in Belville scenarios were modelled with an emphasis on mobility and the opportunities with modal shift, potential measures in car, PT and NMT network in and around the location.
The second and third workshop in Philippi and Paardevlei took place in May 2017.
