The city of Seville is currently developing a land
use reorganisation policy aimed at increasing the
number of pedestrian spaces. This paper contains the microscopic simulation built to assess one of those
pedestrianisation initiatives from the point of vi
ew of its effects on traffic flows and, more specifically,
freight deliveries. Two different alternatives are compared with the current scenario from the point of
view of traffic congestion, parking space occupation and route times. Due to the complexity o
f the freight
delivery practices involved, the use of a standard traffic simulation package was not appropriate, and the
simulations were carried out using the commercial package Arena, which enabled the representation of all
that complexity with a spec
cally built simulation model
