Tenk Tromsø is a city development project where the aim is to facilitate pedestrian, cycle and public transport traffic to reach the chief aim of zero-growth private car transport.
Tenk Tromsø is a collaboration between the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, Troms and Finnmark County Council, Tromsø municipality and the people of Tromsø. Together we will contribute to a forward thinking city with better mobility for all, a city with better air quality and less noise, a city that will see a growing number of everyday travels at the same time as we make sure we have a good city environment for all.
Safer to walk or cycle
We shall build safe routes to school, good pavements, better short-cuts, functional cycle tracks and implement traffic safety measures throughout the urban area - we shall make it simpler and safer to choose footpaths and cycle tracks instead of the car for short trips.
We shall build user friendly bus terminals, better bus stops and bus hubs, and we shall implement measures to provide for better traffic flow for the bus. We shall co-finance the city bus programme. Altogether we shall make sure that the bus will be an even more attractive alternative to using the car for travels in the city.
Transport for trade and industry
We shall build roads to improve trade and industry transport in Tromsø. The first stage of this includes upgrading the road stretch Stakkevollvegen – Skattørvegen. We shall improve driving conditions for motorists by moving cyclists and pedestrians to suitable pavements, and through measures to ensure better traffic flow for all traffic groups. By means of our projects, we want to contribute to safer and faster travels by car when it is necessary to use the car.
Combined, all these measures and projects in Tenk Tromsø will provide for better mobility for all while we take care of the environment in our city.
