Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to propose information of use in the reconstruction of urban transport and infrastructure in response to the Great East Japan Earthquake. In particular, knowledge of urban planning and transportation planning is summarized to help in drawing up physical plans.From the viewpoint of reconstructing urban structure, it is necessary to create regional linkages to adjacent cities within a compact district connected by various transport modes. And, the redundancy in traffic function can be secured through a suitable division of roles between automobile traffic and public transportation. Besides, the following issues are discussed: 1) improvements aimed at a safe living environment, 2) examination of new intersections, and 3) sharing crossing space between people and cars. Moreover, introducing new technology in transport planning should also be considered to cope with the aging of society to come.
