Sandnes, East (2006)
"Historic" good relations and cooperation with Gottfried Heinzerling from IRIS RESEARCH (formerly Rogaland Research) lead to a very challenging new assignment in 2006.
Cities of Stavanger and Sandnes forming more or less a conurbation with about 200000 population in the region of Northern Jaeren, regional land-use planning is now focussing on a number of relatively scattered development areas in Sandnes East to allow further population increase by about 45000 heads.
RESEARCH / Kuehn team´s task was to identify the Public Transport
Implications of such a development, especially with regard to using
slightly denser housing options in order to achieve a more concentrated/effective
corridor and to both reduce costs for service infrastructure in general
(including PT infrastructures) and PT-operations while at the same
moment allowing higher PT-quality as a branch of the planned Bybane-scheme
instead of relying purely on buses again.
