Traffic investigation & public participation Munich Solln

The efforts to improve the traffic situation in Munich's Solln district are an exemplary case of participatory urban planning. Involving local residents in the planning process is a crucial step in ensuring that the measures developed are not only technically feasible but also socially acceptable. In the Solln district in the south of Munich, complaints about road safety, through traffic and slow-moving traffic have been piling up for years. In the "Sollner Dreieck" (Bleibtreustr. - Herterichstr. -Wolfratshauser Str.) in particular, resentment has grown in recent years. Carrying out traffic surveys and calculating the capacity of important junctions are fundamental technical steps to obtain a clear picture of the current situation. The subsequent information and participation event shows how important it is not only to inform citizens, but also to actively involve them in the planning process.

The Planning for Real format, in which citizens themselves take on the role of transport planners, is an innovative method of encouraging engagement and creative solutions. It allows participants to contribute their own ideas and solutions in a way that is both understandable and tangible. The use of pictograms and planning software helps to visualise complex planning concepts and makes it easier for citizens to understand the implications of their proposals.

The careful examination of all ideas and proposals submitted by specialist planners ensures that the final measures are realisable and effective. The final presentation and discussion of the measures before the district committee is a further step towards ensuring transparency and promoting public confidence in the planning process. Prioritising the measures through discussion with local residents ensures that the most pressing needs and concerns of the community are addressed.
