Abstract
This study politicises transportation planning by applying a socioenvironmental justice perspective on the case of Bypass Stockholm. The theoretical framework includes nature-society and time-space relationships, socioenvironmental justice, and urban transportation concepts. Qualitative interviews, text analyses, and quantitative mapping of geographical distributions of social data are performed in order to analyse planning practices, policies, priorities, and potential distributions of socioenvironmental risks and benefits. The results of this study indicate that negative externalities will to a disproportional extent fall upon socioenvironments where less privileged populations reside. Benefits from increased transportation opportunities... (More)
This study politicises transportation planning by applying a socioenvironmental justice perspective on the case of Bypass Stockholm. The theoretical framework includes nature-society and time-space relationships, socioenvironmental justice, and urban transportation concepts. Qualitative interviews, text analyses, and quantitative mapping of geographical distributions of social data are performed in order to analyse planning practices, policies, priorities, and potential distributions of socioenvironmental risks and benefits. The results of this study indicate that negative externalities will to a disproportional extent fall upon socioenvironments where less privileged populations reside. Benefits from increased transportation opportunities created by the bypass will mainly benefit others than the exposed populations in these areas. The Bypass Stockholm project will mainly improve the socioenvironments and (auto)mobility of privileged populations. (Less)
