City density

An average city in Europe may show a population density of about 5000 inhabitants per km2.

City centres have much more, from 12,000 upwards.

However, around 40% of the area of these cities is allocated to car transport system – for example, roads, garages, parking spaces, car showrooms, repair shops and so on.

If the car transport system were to be abandoned, how dense could cities get and still retan the feeling of a density of 5000 per km2?’
