    Project Details


    The main purpose of the BASISNET-project is to map future demands and needs for public transport of high quality in Copenhagen, and to suggest specific solutions to meet these demands. The perspective is the period until 2010. Thus, it is examined which future traffic problems, the backbone public transport system must solve (basis network). The whole region of Copenhagen is dealt with and different system-solution, e.g. fast busses, trams, light rail and mini-metro are dealt with. The project includes traffic forecasts, impact analyses, sketch plans and economic estimates. It does not only consider technical solutions and analyses but also the infrastructures lay out within the city, including architecture and aesthetics.
    IFP's role is to coordinate GIS-data, carry through GIS-analyses and visualisations and to contribute to assessment and discussions of the results of runs with traffic models. Both the Greater Copenhagen Traffic Model and the 'Ørestads' Model are used for the study in order to get a more broad evaluation of traffic impacts.
