Accessibility of Central Places in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (2013)
The Federal State of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is presently updating its state development programme, in which accessibility plays a central role. For developing appropriate ways of dealing with changing framework conditions, an analysis of the current accessibility conditions by public transport, cycling and pedelecs as well as the combination of bicycles and pedelecs is needed. The objective of this study funded by the State Ministry of Energy, Infrastructure and Spatial Development is to obtain a precise picture of the current accessibility conditions in the State using the transport modes mentioned above and to evaluate these with the time thresholds of the Guidelines for Integrated Network Design (RIN 2008). In concrete terms the accessibility of the central places from their surrounding catchment areas, the accessibility of the central places with respect to each other and the accessibility of the neighbouring larger centres outside of the Federal State of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern are to be calculated, analysed and presented in tables and visualised in maps.
The final report of the project is available on the website of the Ministry of Energy, Infrastructure and Regional Development Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
