Project Details


The next generation of mobility nodes should support a more sustainable urban and regional network structure in Northern Jutland.

Mobility nodes foster multimodality. They challenge monomodality by supplementing car-based infrastructure with efficient and attractive mobility options in villages, towns, and urban districts, implementing new technologies and concepts of mobility.

Mobility nodes should be efficient and safe transport sites. At the same time they must be meaningful, just and attractive places for people. They must be weaved into the local urban fabric and everyday lives, and as such they may be generators of access, urban life, spatial quality and urban development.

With this hybrid perspective, we have inquired into spatial strategies and designs of the next generation of mobility nodes.

What are the site-specific conditions and potentials for the next generation of mobility nodes in urban and rural settings across Northern Jutland, Denmark?

This question was explored by a team of students and researchers at the Urban Design MA2 programme at Aalborg University Spring 2020, in collaboration with Brønderslev Kommune, Aalborg Kommune and Nordjyllands Trafikselskab.

Four mobility nodes are the sites of inquiry:
- Hjallerup bus terminal and town centre
- Bouet future park ’n’ride hub
- Nørresundby Torv network mobility node
- Village cluster 9293 (Kongerslev) rural mobility hub

The project is a C-MUS PRAKSIS LIVING LAB learning and development collaboration between Brønderslev Kommune, Aalborg Kommune and Nordjyllands Trafikselskab and MA2 Urban Design, AAU.
