Why removing traffic lanes in Brussels does not imply additional traffic jams?

This Monday, "Le Scan" on the RTBF presented by Guillaume Woelfle try to answer to this question (https://www.rtbf.be/info/societe/detail_le-scan-pourquoi-enlever-une-bande-de-circulation-ne-cree-pas-plus-d-embouteillages?id=10505657).



Le Scan - Remove traffic lanes impact on traffic


Louis Duvigneaud explains that the traffic jam is not due to the limited number of lanes but to the limitations of the crossroads.


It is the bottleneck principle, quite similar to the one described in the novel "The Goal" from Eliyahu Goldratt.


This bottleneck is moving and is not always where we think.


I see similarities with mobility management in companies making it complex.


Creating bottlenecks by introducing parking management, for example, will incentivize mobility shifts.
