Traffic management in urban networks is considerably more complicated as a great variety of transport modalities with different characteristics are using the same network. For example, a green wave for cars often will not be a green wave for cyclists. And priority for public transport vehicles at an intersection simply means that other modes will have to wait longer. The problem that needs to be addressed is whether there are control principles that can be applied on the basis of a socially responsible allocation of the available capacity. Prior to formulating these control principles it will be necessary to investigate which conflicts between the various modes (may) occur and what dilemmas will be encountered when searching for a solution.
