Positive decision on light rail
December 17, 2015 is a historic date in the development of Science Village. Two positive decisions concerning the tramway were made on the same day. First of all news of the financing of the tramway from the state urban environment authority and later in the day the decision was made to construct the tram route from Lund C to ESS by Lund City Council.
The tramway is a priority project and an attractive public transport mode. In addition it is a step in the right direction towards creating a sustainable Science Village. It is very important that trams are established early on in the expansion of the district since it enhances the probability that the tram becomes the preferred method of travel to Brunnshög.
Currently the terminus station is planned to be located in the heart of Science Village. In its immediate vicinity the guest researcher accommodation, the restaurant and educational facilities are planned including the Visitor Centre. The decision on the tramline will make the researchers’ and the employees’ journeys much smoother.
