Objectives: To evaluate the impact generated in cars travel time by road redirections made in the gastronomic zone in Manizales, Colombia. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Using the global mean accessibility and integral accessibility to gastronomic zone in Manizales for two differents scenarios, before and after the road redirections we will use the saving gradient to measure the impact of the new directions in the urban mobility. Findings: The impact generated by the road redirections in both accessibility measures is negative, so the travel times increase in the new scenario. This would generate a disminution in the use of private vehicule in the gastronomic zone and an increase use for walking and public transport. Application/Improvement: Accessibility as a tool fro urban planning and the measure of the impact of road redirections in specific zones in the cities where it would like to generated a space free of private vehicles.
