Uppsala is growing rapidly. The south parts of the city are undergoing a massive transformation. The municipality is planning for 25 000 new housings and 10 000 new workplaces by the year 2050.
This excursion will focus on mobility planning in Ulleråker, situated just south of Uppsala city centre. Ulleråker is one of Sweden´s largest city development projects. A dense and sustainable urban district is being planned. In order to realize these plans there is a need to heavily limit the motor driven traffic in the area, since Ulleråker is situated on the drinking water source of Uppsala, where oil leakage could cause severe damage. The goal for Ulleråker is to achieve 80% sustainable travels within the area. A mobility strategy and an action plan have been developed to help the cause.
The developers are involved in the work to increase sustainable travelling. All car parking will be situated in the outskirts of the area and mobility centres/hubs are being planned to increase sustainable mobility. Concepts for mobility/transport as a service are being discussed and developed on a district level in cooperation with developers. To include freight as a mobility service will be a key to successful planning.
On March the 1st, a construction logistics centre was opened in Uppsala in order to create a flexible city development. The goal is to reduce the amount of construction transports in and through the city and to increase the construction efficiency through smart planning.
This excursion will take you on a bike ride along the river Fyris to the new development areas Ulleråker and Rosendal. We will move through different new development areas in different stages; newly built, under construction and areas still in the planning phase. Along the road we will address mobility issues, such as planning for a future with uncertain mobility needs.
