Within the Amsterdam Lelylaan Study, 2getthere contributed to the transformation of the A10 ring road from a barrier that inhibits connection between the inner and outer parts of the city to a desirable destination through integration of the highway and the city in a way that generates new forms of living and improves mobility for future inhabitants. The solution is a new multimodal transport hub, alongside new urban developments on both sides of the A10 and the introduction of 2getthere’s Shared Autonomous Vehicles.
The Hub offers a smooth mobility transition between private cars and public transit. In addition to parking, restaurants and retail, it also includes a stop for the CityPods. The pods provide a shorter (~ 12 minutes) connection to Amsterdam centre, with a high service level. This can be realized without having to create new lanes by using the existing space more efficiently. The Shared Autonomous Vehicles ensure the number of cars is reduced, sustainability and liveability are improved and parking can be converted to value adding purposes.
The proposal will result in the introduction of 8,400 new residential units, in a total built area of 750,000 m² and an added value of 370 million Euro in revenue. With underground and above ground connections there will no longer be a prevailing concept of the inner/outer ring, featuring streets and pathways that favor pedestrians and the automated transit system. The realization can be done in phases, allowing the development to start today, while accommodating adaptation to market fluctuations moving forward.
