dc.description.abstractObject: European non-motorway roads nearby natural and cultural heritage overlapping cross border regions in the European Union. Subject: Redundant roads as an Opportunity for land- use change, landscape identity disclosure and reducedspeed access network for the promotion of cultural tourism. The paper sustains a methodology to alleviate road redundancy by reconverting them into a reduced-speed access network. The aim would be to recreate historical access and circulation flows, which in turn might emphasize a more appropriate visual approach to cultural and natural heritage. Thus, we face the reinterpretation of the ‘scenic route’ concept on the contemporary European transport framework. Our goals are to promote an alternative, reduced-speed tourist network, focused upon culture, heritage and landscape; recycling the redundant roads under consideration.
