Job van Eldijk, Chalmers & Ramboll
"I’ve done the project as an industrial PhD student which allowed me to combine research with my practical work as an urban planner at consulting company Ramboll. This has created such an incredible opportunity for an exchange between practice and research. A large part of the project has involved carrying things between the two: questions and issues from practice to research and insights and tools from research to practice. That was very inspiring and rewarding."
Job van Eldijk has studied the barrier effects that transport infrastructure have on pedestrian and bicycle traffic. His most important findings are that measuring and mapping of these barrier effects need to be based not only on characteristics of the infrastructure itself but also on the distribution of land use, the structure of the street network that surrounds the infrastructure and the mobility conditions and needs of the people that want to cross. Furthermore, Job and fellow researchers observed the importance of knowledge of the social process between different stakeholders in infrastructure projects that is required for assessing barrier effects, as different stakeholders often have different perspectives on the project.
