POLIDORO, Maurício; LOLLO, José Augusto de  e  BARROS, Mirian Vizintim Fernandes. Sprawl and motorized modal transport: impacts in the city of Londrina, PR. urbe, Rev. Bras. Gest. Urbana [online]. 2012, vol.4, n.1, pp.33-46. ISSN 2175-3369.

After 80 years since the construction of its core, represented today by the central city area, Londrina, in the state of Parana, appears as a new city, but with features and trends of planning policies that reproduce the bad examples of cities. With an urban settlement in frank expansion, north and south growth of the city add land speculation and urban voids in the interstices that outline a city far from ideal, as conceived in its beginning. With a metropolitan atmosphere and at the same time countryside aspects, Londrina is a brand of exclusive occupation policy-driven and real estate interests, a fact that has impacted the livelihood of the population and generated environmental impacts for all social classes. This research discusses the kind of occupation in Londrina, characterized by the phenomenon of sprawl and its relation to the mode of expansion observed and the implications of intensive use of cars. The choice of car use in Londrina has been growing and generated bottlenecks in traffic. As a consequence there is the constant expropriation of property for widening of roads and at the same time, the presence of various densities and urban voids forming an uneven urban space and hindering an efficient urban planning.
