"We have reviewed the scientific literature on plans for private car free cities, restricted car use, related exposures and health", says Mark Nieuwenhuijsen, researcher at CREAL and ISGlobal and first author of the study.

Many cities across the world are beginning to shift their mobility solution away from the private cars and towards more environmentally friendly and citizen-focused means. "Hamburg, Oslo, Helsinki, and Madrid have recently announced their plans to become partly private car free cities. Other cities like Paris, Milan, Chengdu, Masdar, Dublin, Brussels, Copenhagen, Bogota, and Hyderabad have measures that aim at reducing motorized traffic including implementing car free days, investing in cycling infrastructure and pedestrianization, restricting parking spaces and considerable increases in public transport provision", explains Nieuwenhuijsen.

Nieuwenhuijsen coordinates the Phenotype project at the Center for Research in Environmental Epidemiology (CREAL) - which is a member of the ISGlobal alliance- and was the scientific leader for the scientific debates entitled Green Cities Healthy People.

According to Dr. Nieuwenhuijsen, the green zones in Barcelona are in good conditions and parks like the Ciutadella are truly accessible and frequently used. Nevertheless, he adds, new green zones are needed and urban planning must continue to be improved, taking into account health problems.
