Kleinwabern–Kehrsatz corridor (Canton Bern)

Coordination of urban deve­lop­ment and traffic

The road network in the Kleinwabern–Kehrsatz corridor is close to capacity, especially in the Kleinwabern area. Extension of Bern tramline no. 9 to Balsigergut plus forecast housing growth over the next few years call for urban planning needs to be coordinated with the development of the existing transport system. A study drawn up as a basis for future work in this area illustrates the mutual dependencies between urban growth on the one hand and transport requirements and operations (esp. use of a “traffic batch system”) on the other. A batch masterplan was developed based on the operating conditions and objectives defined.

Scope of services:

  • Masterplan for batch control points and traffic management
  • Development of batch control system
  • Analysis of traffic survey results
  • Coordination with cantonal traffic model
  • VISSIM simulations
