A total of 20 places in the city of Stockholm were temporarily re-designed during summer 2018, one of them being the street Norrtullsgatan. Although the changes are not permanent, there are plans for them to become so. But first, Viscando was asked to investigate how the new layout worked in practice.
The City of Stockholm has a project called “Levande Stockholm” (Liveable Stockholm). The aim is to make the city more enjoyable and friendly for walking. This is done by expanding the space for pedestrians and making the space more pleasant and accessible.
All movement patterns through the area have been mapped using Viscando’s unique solution, based on 3D and Artificial Intelligence (AI). This gives a visual and comprehensive picture of the traffic, movement, flows and speeds. The images show parts of the results.
City of Stockholm conclusions
The Traffic Administration Office has recently received the results of Viscando’s measurements and analyses. This gives the planning office far better opportunities to improve and optimize the design before it is made permanent. Conclusions from the Traffic Administration Office and Theodor Bratt are:
Important areas that the public road authorities and City of Stockholm wanted to investigate
“Both citizens of Stockholm and visitors appreciate this. We are constantly looking for new places that we can develop and improve to make Stockholm more liveable.” Daniel Helldén, City Councillor for Transport.
