  • Abstract in English : Infrastructure networks have a strong impact on the development of cities and landscape. This impact is often positive in an economic sense, but can be negative in respect of natural or recreational functions of city and countryside. The challenge for spatial planning is to locate infrastructure lines in order to safeguard the conditions for the less dynamic functions in and around the urban regions. In relation to this five phenomena (of quality) have been indicated: polarity, decentrality, equality, continuity, formality.
