Jobs created out of Tallinn have not reduced commuting

DOI: 10.3846/bjrbe.2013.08
Although urban sprawl is relatively new process for Estonia which has not revealed itself to the full extent, in many European cities urban sprawl is recognised as a major challenge to quality of life. Due to the above mentioned negative aspects of urban sprawl in some countries the efforts are determined to restrain urban sprawl. Many studies have been undertaken to research the financial, ecological, cultural and social cost of urban sprawl in most of developed countries. This is the main reason, why declared in the majority of studies the theses, especially in the field of traffic and transportation, cannot be applied to assess situation in our country. Estonia has many geographical, economical, social and cultural peculiarities, which influence its traffic and transportation patterns as well as its urban sprawl rates. Economical crisis has shown the exigency to reduce drastically non-productive expenses and optimize productivity of labour. Thus the reduction of losses in traffic and transportation could be one of all possible solutions. In this article the commuting caused by urban sprawl has been analyzed. The second task is to find out in which range public databases are used to determine the demand of mobility.
Keywords: urban sprawl, commuting, traffic volume, mobility, territorial planning, public databases.
