|GP: Transformation of a city centre area into a clean urban transport area in Gdynia - Poland|
Objectives/ Innovative Aspects
Shift in modal choice of citizens who have the option of car use towards the alternatives. Enhance the quality of life.
Before TELLUS the city centre was constantly overloaded. Private vehicles were parked on both sides of the main street. The traction constructed in the early 60’s was mostly attached to the walls of the buildings, which caused vibrations and increased the noise level both in the houses and on the street. This type of traction disabled other vehicles’ traffic, therefore causing higher air pollution.
Description of the implementation
The modernisation of the Main City Street (Swietojanska street) is divided into 3 stages. It means that the street has been divided into 3 sections. Implementation of two out of three sections of the street has been completed within TELLUS. The final section was commenced within the project time frame.
