CARDONA, Santiago; ESCOBAR, Diego A.  and  MONCADA, Carlos A.. Accessibility analysis as a tool for the generation of traffic free zones. Case study: La Dorada, Colombia. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.5, pp.203-214. ISSN 0718-0764.

An analysis of the impact that can generate changes of speed and of transit direction in the road network of the municipality of La Dorada in the department of Caldas (Colombia) is presented and discussed. This is done employing models of transport, in order to generate a free-zone of vehicular flow in the Malecón area where public spaces and recreation for citizens can be enhanced. Through an accessibility analysis in four scenarios, the current situation and three intervention alternatives, the percentage of savings in the average travel time in the base situation and in every alternative scenario is calculated. The results show that a correct combination of direction changes and speed changes in the road network can decrease the flow of vehicles of a city area due to the saving of time when using other different routes to move.
