Grenland, Norway (2005)
Grenland is a region in the South of Norway around the two neighbouring cities of Skien and Porsgrunn and part of Telemark County.
Within Telemark County some vision about a Grenland Bybane has been existing since the mid-90's ("first generation TramTrain euphoria") but it lasted until 2005 that new political initiatives allowed to start with an update of the original ideas.
Kuehn's involvement has been the organisation and professional guidance
of a studytour in July 2005 (see below) and a review of the project
using the "50 TramTrain issues method" (www.lightrail.nl/TramTrain)
together with Rob van der Bijl (see www.lightrail.nl/rvdb)
in August/September 2005. The latter study included a project definition
(the original "vision" not yet being a real, identifiable
project) and staging which is to be used in a pilot study to be performed
by local Norwegian consultants. Axel Kuehn stays on the client's side
for further expert advice/second opinion.
