Sweco to set out mobility vision for Flemish transport regions

9 September 2019

In a consortium, Sweco will provide process guidance and set out the mobility vision for several transport regions in Belgium. The project has been commissioned by the Flemish Department of Mobility and Public Works and is worth approximately 3.4 million euros.

The consortium, consisting of Sweco, The New Drive and Goudappel Coffeng, will set out regional mobility plans for the ‘Vlaamse Rand’ (Flemish periphery), Ghent, Limburg, Mechelen and Kortrijk. Sweco is part of the core team that will provide process guidance and set out the long-term vision. The consortium is currently drawing up the mobility plan for the transport region of Antwerp.

All transport regions in Flanders have a framework within which they can collaborate on mobility challenges. Our assignment will assist 155 of the 300 Flemish municipalities to set a mobility vision for all modes of transport, including public transport networks, measures for improving traffic flow, traffic safety and cycling policies.
