    Last week we, Beccan Davila Urbanismo, Rebel and MOVE Mobility, started the preparation for a participatory design workshop to be held in Zárate, Argentina on 1ste and 2nd of November. The main purpose of the workshop is to design a strategy that could sustainably integrate the challenges of the continental territory and the sector of islands located in the Delta, both belonging to the Zárate county. This plan will be an integrated solution between water, mobility, urban planning and finance. Based on this draft strategy a cluster of strategic projects will be defined and one will be chosen for further development including a draft financial arrangement/strategy. Zárate should be considered as a pilot initiative that could be repeated in other cities of the Delta.The workshop is sponsored by Partners for Water and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency and will be coordinated by the Sociedad Arquitectos de Zárate.

    São Tomé en Principe is an independent democracy with 200,000 inhabitants. It is an archipelago and is threatened by the sea. A large integral project is now being set up to protect the coast in a sustainable way. Many agencies are involved. MOVE Mobility is conducting the mobility study, including the design of the 7 km long Boulevard.

  3. Redevelopment of Kajjansi market area

    Comments Off on Redevelopment of Kajjansi market area

    Kajjansi is a town in Wakiso District and nowadays integrated into the greater Kampala Metropolitan area. The Kajjansi area was always known for its market along the main connecting road from Kampala to Entebbe. Uganda’s rapid development (connection Airport Entebbe – capital Kampala) puts pressure on this area. Nowadays there is a lack of good quality housing, clean water, sanitation, reliable power supply, waste management, and adequate infrastructure for all modes.

    Field visits were undertaken and variety of stakeholder meetings took place focusing on spatial, mobility and inclusive business qualities, constraints and opportunities. In total over 30 organisations have actively contributed to the three development scenarios described in the Kajjansi Junction Report. The project is considered as a first step in a timeline that enables a phased operationalisation of an integrated spatial development strategy (Masterplan).


  4. Kampala city centre NMT pilot project

    Comments Off on Kampala city centre NMT pilot project

    Kampala is the capital of Uganda and has a population of 1.2 million. During the day, this number increases to 2.2 million due to the influx of 1 million commuters. Congestion, chaos and air pollution are at very high levels. In co-operation with various organisations, city authorities, Goudappel Coffeng and the Iganga Foundation, we have been working for some years now to get the traffic organised and resolve many of the problems in the process. An example is the Kampala City Centre Pilot Project, which introduces sustainable urban transport. UNEP (the United Nations Environment Program) has been part of the project team from the start. MOVE Mobility, together with its partners finished the detailed design.

    In co-operation with various organisations, city authorities and other partners, we worked to get the traffic organised, gave recommendations and resolved many of the problems in the planning process and transport-related policies.

    Kampala City Centre Pilot Project introduces sustainable urban transport. The detailed design was finalised.

    As continuation of the Kampala City Centre Pilot Project, which introduces sustainable urban transport, the NMT pilot route, extension Speke Road – Shimoni Road was designed. We worked from ‘big to small’. First, the networks for cycling and cars on a city level were studied (and designed) and then the work focused on the Central Business District. Once the (future) functions of the roads were clear, the design integrated:

    • car accessibility
    • cycling and walking infrastructure
    • public transport; BRT lines
    • quality of urban space
    • the green structure

    For the city of Austin a preliminary draft for the South-Lamar Corridor was developed, led by HDR. The city of Austin asked us together with our partner Goudappel Coffeng to assess the designs and specifically to look at the facilities for cyclists and pedestrians. During the working visit in February, we participated in a so-called WalkAudit and we organised a workshop with all parties involved. The results have been used to assess the design and to work out in more detail a design for the bike crossing.
