The spring of 2019 will see the first turf cut for Denmark's first BRT system (bus rapid transit). Being a green public transit solution, the BRT system will help boost the city and support future urban development.
The BRT line will run in a separate alignment for long sections, will have priority in intersections and each bus will have room for 150-200 passengers. Travelling the full 12 kilometres of the BRT line will take 30 minutes, from the racetrack in the west, via the city centre and Aalborg University, to the New Aalborg University Hospital in the east. The line will include 22 stations and buses will run at intervals of 7.5 minutes. As many as 50,000 residents will live less than 500 metres from a BRT station, which will provide unseen flexibility and mobility and fundamentally change the city's coherence.
COWI was awarded the contract following a tendering process, and will assist Aalborg Municipality in the design of the BRT system.
