Abstract To provide for peoples needs in the future, further improvements of the road network are a necessity. Simultaneously, harmful effects of this network on both local inhabitants and the flora and fauna become more penetrating. So, sustainable land use planning creates a great challenge for rural road network planning. To serve interests of both accessibility and a sustainable environment, a new planning approach must be developed. This approach also should tackle the problem of traffic unsafety on minor rural roads. The spatial concept of the Traffic Calmed Rural Area (TCRA) is presented as a solution to the dilemma between improving accessibility and damaging the environment. The concept will result in a concentration of present diffuse flows at the minor rural roads at a few trunk roads. So, traffic volumes and speeds within the region will decrease. For two regions, several impacts of the TCRA concept (on volumes, accessibility and environment) are calculate
