The superblock is a model of mobility that restructures the typical urban road network. Superblocks have the potential ot provide solutions to the main problems of urban mobility and to improve both the availability and quality of the public space for pedestrians and people sojourning in a space. In order to achieve this, two fundamental changes must be made: modification to the basic road network and the establishment of differentiated routes for each mode of transport. The superblock is composed of a set of basic roads forming a polygon that contains within it several blocks of the current urban fabric. This new urban cell has both an interior and exterior component. The interior is closed to through vehicles and open to residents, primarily. The exterior forms the basic road network on the periphery and is typically 400 metres wide for use by motorized vehicles.
