Abstract

The main messages of the contribution in five points are the following:

(1) Besides temporal relations of sustainability, we also have to underline the importance of the spatial context of it.

(2) It is the internal network of a region that helps to preserve the structure and the existing connections within the region.

(3) The proper external connections of the region are also very important, but their positive effects can reach the given region only if the internal transmitter elements are existing and the region is able to adapt these effects.

(4) There is no such rule that the more transit (through traffic) would be better. The transport that exceeds the region's adaptive capacity is harmful for the local economy, society and environment alike.

(5) A newer and also important function of the transport management is to bypass those areas where the extensive traffic would be harmful.
