Brønderslev

Brønderslev is a town with a population of 12,581 located 31 kilometers north of Aalborg. It is the municipal seat of Brønderslev municipality, Vendsyssel in Region Nordjylland, the northernmost part of the Jutland peninsula in northern Denmark. One of its sister cities is Sweden; the name of the town is derived from Brunder. Southwest of Brønderslev is the large bog of Store Vildmose; the bog is a natural attraction in itself, but it has revealed many archaeological finds from the Iron Age in particular. Brønderslev is home to the regional-museum of'Vildmosemuseet', concentrating on the cultural-history of Store Vildmose and surroundings. Vildmosemuseet is part of The Museums in Brønderslev Municipality which comprise a total of three museums, all recognized by the State of Denmark; the other two being'Try Museum' and'Dorf Møllegård', both in Dronninglund. Brønderslev is served by Brønderslev railway station, it is located on the Aalborg-Hjørring-Frederikshavn railway line and offers direct InterCity services to Copenhagen and Frederikshavn and regional train services to Aalborg and Frederikshavn.

Access management

Access management, Access control. When used in traffic and traffic engineering circles, this refers to the regulation of interchanges, intersections and median openings to a roadway, its objectives are to enable access to land uses while maintaining roadway safety and mobility through controlling access location, design and operation. This is important for major roadways intended to provide efficient service to through-traffic movements. Access management is most evident on freeways where access is grade separated and all movements are via dedicated ramps, it is important on arterial roads where at-grade intersections and private driveways increase the number of conflicts involving vehicles and pedestrians. It is important on minor roadways for safety considerations such as driver sight distance. Planners, architects, elected officials and attorneys all play a significant role in access management. Businesses view any attempt to limit access to their land uses as economically detrimental; this can make implementation controversial.

However, there is evidence showing that access management can have the positive effect of increasing market area through reducing travel times on major roadways, that minor increases in circuity do not cause customers to stop patronizing businesses. The most authoritative North American reference on the subject is the Access Management Manual and the Access Management Application Guidelines published by the Transportation Research Board of the National Academy of Sciences. Colorado was the first state to enact legislation in 1979 and to adopt an associated code of practice and regulatory framework. Since that time, transportation agency interest in access management has grown significantly. Access management programs seek to limit and consolidate access along major roadways, while promoting a supporting street system and unified access and circulation systems for development; the result is a roadway that functions safely and efficiently for its useful life, a more attractive corridor. The goals of access management are accomplished by applying the following principles:1.

Provide a Specialized Roadway System: Different types of roadways serve different functions. It is important to design and manage roadways according to the primary functions that they are expected to serve. 2. Limit Direct Access to Major Roadways: Roadways that serve higher volumes of regional through traffic need more access control to preserve their traffic function. Frequent and direct property access is more compatible with the function of local and collector roadways. 3. Promote Intersection Hierarchy: An efficient transportation network provides appropriate transitions from one classification of roadway to another. For example, freeways connect to arterials through an interchange, designed for the transition. Extending this concept to other roadways results in a series of intersection types that range from the junction of two major arterial roadways, to a residential driveway connecting to a local street. 4. Locate Signals to Favor Through Movements: Long, uniform spacing of intersections and signals on major roadways enhances the ability to coordinate signals and to ensure continuous movement of traffic at the desired speed.

Failure to locate access connections or median openings that become signalized, can cause substantial increases in arterial travel times. In addition, poor signal placement may lead to delays that cannot be overcome by computerized signal timing systems. 5. Preserve the Functional Area of Intersections and Interchanges: The functional area of an intersection or interchange is the area, critical to its safe and efficient operation; this is the area where motorists are responding to the intersection or interchange and maneuvering into the appropriate lane to stop or complete a turn. Access connections too close to intersections or interchange ramps can cause serious traffic conflicts that result in crashes and congestion. 6. Limit the Number of Conflict Points: Drivers make more mistakes and are more to have collisions when they are presented with the complex driving situations created by numerous conflict points. Conversely, simplifying the driving task contributes to improved traffic operations and fewer collisions.

A less complex driving environment is accomplished by limiting the number and type of conflicts between vehicles and pedestrians, vehicles and bicyclists. 7. Separate Conflict Areas: Drivers need sufficient time to address one set of potential conflicts before facing another; the necessary spacing between conflict areas increases as travel speed increases, to provide drivers adequate perception and reaction time. Separating conflict areas helps to simplify the driving task and contributes to improved traffic operations and safety. 8. Remove Turning Vehicles from Through Traffic Lanes: Turning lanes allow drivers to decelerate out of the through lane and wait in a protected area for an opportunity to complete a turn; this reduces the severity and duration of conflict between turning vehicles and through traffic and improves the safety and efficiency of roadway intersections. 9. Use Nontraversable Medians to Manage Left-Turn Movements: Medians channel turning movements on major roadways to controlled locations.

Research has shown. Therefore, nontraversable medians and other techniques that minimize left turns or reduce the driver workload can be effective in improving roadway safety. 10. Provide a Supporting Street and Circulation System: Well-planned communities provide a supporting network of local and collector streets to accommodate develop

Cyprus–Greece relations

Cyprus–Greece relations are the bilateral relations between the Republic of Cyprus and the Hellenic Republic. Cyprus has a consulate-general in Thessaloniki. Greece has an embassy in Nicosia. Both countries are full members of the European Union, Council of Europe and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe. Relations between the two countries have been exceptionally close since antiquity; the Greek Cypriot majority in Cyprus and the ethnic Greek population of Greece share a common ethnicity, heritage and religion, leading to an exceptionally close relationship between the two countries. Traditionally, Greece has been the major import partner of Cyprus.
